Noncommunicable diseases are the leading cause of premature death globally.
Every year, 41 million people die from heart attacks, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes or a mental disorder.
Despite the concerning trends and figures, global efforts are not enough to prevent and reverse the harm.
The Nordic Alcohol and Drug Policy Network (NordAN) was established in September 2000 as a network of non-governmental, voluntary organisations. Their aim is to reduce the consumption of alcohol and other drugs and support restrictive alcohol and drug policy.
In an attempt to prevent harmful tobacco use, countries have introduced policies such as the minimum number of cigarettes. This increases the cost of buying a packet of tobacco and it is hoped it will deter young people from buying.
In contrast, however, there is little regulation of the maximum number of cigarettes contained in a pack.

As one of the objectives of the European Health Programme project “Exchanging Prevention practices on Polydrug use among youth in Criminal justice systems” (EPPIC), the present handbook of quality standards was produced to help practitioners improve the quality of interventions targeting drug experienced young people in contact with Criminal Justice Systems (CJS).
