Cyprus investing in social policies to battle drug addiction, health ministry says
The health ministry said on Sunday that Cyprus was investing a social policy to address addiction to narcotics, in a message to mark World Day Against Drugs and Drug Trafficking.
The social policy was being based on EU standards “so that we can all feel that scientifically proven steps have been taken towards a society that is as well protected as possible from substance abuse,” the ministry said.
The ministry said it was committed to creating an environment that supports everyone who need help with drug addition, whatever the circumstance.
In a separate message, the president of the Addiction Treatment Authority, Dr Christos Minas said dealing with addiction requires a multi-themed, balanced and integrated policy, and cooperation.
