Abstract

Introduction The use of addictive substances has effects on many aspects of individuals' lives, as well as those of their families and friends, and the wider community. As a result, the benefits of policy interventions designed to reduce the harmful use of addictive substances must be measured across many dimensions, including health, crime and employment. Therefore, comparing the value of different interventions becomes a complex multi-dimensional task. © 1997, Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
