Drug use and abuse is a hidden phenomenon that can only be measured by indirect indicators linked to observable events and times. Such events and times are properly defined and described. A grading system is proposed to make impact analysis. A pilot study of the latency period distribution is used to show how this analysis can be used to evaluate different kinds of prevention and control interventions in the drug field.

Abstract

Drug use and abuse is a hidden phenomenon that can only be measured by indirect indicators linked to observable events and times. Such events and times are properly defined and described. A grading system is proposed to make impact analysis. A pilot study of the latency period distribution is used to show how this analysis can be used to evaluate different kinds of prevention and control interventions in the drug field.
