Treatment of drug dependent children in Macedonia

Creator: Healthy Options Project Skopje (HOPS)

Description: HOPS continues to raise awareness about the seriousness of the lack of treatment programs for resocialization and rehabilitation for children who use drugs, which provides their complete reintegration into society. HOPS is concerned about the dynamics of the Ministry of Health, who works on the manufacture of the protocol for the treatment of children using drugs. The protocol has been in preparation since 2012 and has still not been established. Although the current state with the number of children using drugs every year is getting worse, there is no adequate response from relevant institutions.
