Treatnet(International Network of Drug Dependence Treatment and Rehabilitation Resource Centres)
Vision: All persons whose lives are impaired by drug use receive a wide range of services
Mission: To reach out to service providers to improve the quality, accessibility and affordability of drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation services
Treatnet is a network of drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation centres covering all regions of the world. An initiative of United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Treatnet aims to provide diversified, effective and quality drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation services, including HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Its main strategy is to promote dialogue and the sharing of experience amongst its members and with its partners.
Twenty selected resource centres, together with a capacity-building consortium and UNODC constitute Treatnet, also known as the "International network of drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation resource centres". Participating centres are located in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, India Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States. Treatnet collaborates with a variety of partners including other drug dependence treatment centres (Associated Treatment Providers) and international organizations.
During its first two years, the network will focus on two main goals: identifying and sharing good practices for drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation, and improving the capacity to deliver quality services.
Identifying and sharing good practices:
The Network has identified four priority areas of drug dependence treatment and rehabilitation. By sharing of good practices the aim is to assist service providers to improve the quality of the services and to guide policy-makers in programming and planning. Special attention will be given to the needs of women and young people.
The four priority areas are as follows:
- Community-based treatment
- Drug treatment and rehabilitation in prison settings
- Role of drug dependence treatment on HIV/AIDS prevention and care
- Sustainable livelihoods, rehabilitation and reintegration
The capacity-building component will be implemented by a consortium of 10 leading institutions on drug dependence treatment training and service provision, led by the University of California, Los Angeles/Integrated Substance Abuse Programme (UCLA/ISAP). The Network’s capacity-building plan, includes the compilation of a training package applicable to different socioeconomic settings. In addition, it addresses capacity-building of drug dependency treatment professionals at the resource centres through training of trainers and on-site training. These individuals can in turn become trainers and create a multiplier effect in their respective regions.
Treatnet wishes to thank the following donors for their generous contributions to this effort: Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, U.S.A., and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
