Policy advice: Addiction
With its knowledge about addiction gathered over the years, the Trimbos Instutite can help governments develop effective interventions. This work may include collecting data about addiction at the national, regional, or municipal level. Experts from Trimbos can then help policymakers use the collected data to develop and implement policy changes.
Municipal policies on alcohol, drugs, and tobacco can make very important contributions to a healthier society. Primarily, these policies offer young people a safe and healthy environment in which to grow up. Much is known about what is and isn't effective with regard to policy work. I really like helping municipalities apply this knowledge locally. - Joost Mulder
