CND Day 2 – Plenary statement by Indonesia on the effectiveness of drug prevention interventions

Indonesia has given a special focus on high risk groups, including women and children. Prevention programmes are currently school based, work based, community based, media oriented and religious based. Information on the dangers of abusing drugs has also been diffused through the internet. Some big events have been organised as well throughout the country. Example: Drug free area, which involved the local community, and will be expanded to other areas.

Indonesia has included cannabis in this prevention strategy. It needs additional data on the problem of cannabis to tackle it.

Drug addiction is multi-factorial, and should be dealt with a multi-disciplinary model. Treatment is provided in Indonesia, and monitoring is implemented on the effectiveness of these programmes. We seek to increase treatment in closed facilities. Family therapy, after-care, case management is being provided throughout the country.
