Planning, financing, managing and delivering adequate, sufficient and evidence-based drug treatment services requires detailed knowledge of existing capacity, specific needs, gaps, opportunities and threats at the country level. The WHO-UNODC Substance Use Disorder Treatment Facility Survey
for field testing is a drug services mapping tool to help identify needs and can be used in the mandatory assessment that should precede any initiative aimed at improving, enhancing or upscaling drug treatment services at the national, regional or local level.
Increasing the capacity of Member States to establish systems and services for the treatment of people with drug use disorders is a cornerstone of UNODC’s work on drug demand reduction. UNODC has developed training materials aimed at various audiences to ensure that adequately trained staff are capable of delivering science-based therapeutic interventions.
