Policies and treatments for drug addicts, established in 2010, will be assessed by the external committee of the Board and will suggest a series of measures to improve anti-drug actions in Brazil. The document will be sent later this month to the Presidency and the Ministries of Justice, Social Development and Health Most of the suggestions are related to the care of addicts.

The report concludes that the National Policy on Mental Health, responsible for the treatment of addicts, is inefficient. To improve care for dependents, the committee suggests the total implementation of the budget devoted to fighting drugs, without the possibility of contingency in the three levels of government.

The commission also recommends establishing a scholarship to help with training and professional development of dependend of drugs and creating incentives for companies that antagonizes people who were in treatments for addiction.

The commission will also ask the núcleros dependend of attention to chemicals kept by civil society can receive government support and that the care centers linked to the Unified Health System (SUS) to work in all states. Currently there are 1500 Psychosocial Care Centers in 17 states.

Mr Germano Bonow (DEM-RS), Rapporteur of the External Commission, says that although very numerous, the centers are insufficient to meet demand. He said only the city of São Paulo, 100 of these centers would be needed for adequate care to the population. "There was a takedown in the system of care to the mentally ill in the country and within the mental health policy, it will supply the drugs. More than 80 000 psychiatric beds were closed in the last 20 years.

Education

The report will also suggest, in order to prevent the adoption of public school full time for eight hours for children and youth. Another suggestion is to change the focus of anti-drug campaigns. Instead of showing the harm of drugs, as is currently done, the campaigns are showing the benefits of a life free of addiction.

The committee's report also calls for a ban on advertising of alcohol and the adoption of laws prohibiting public entities that sponsor events related to alcohol and tobacco.

Another suggestion included in the document is that the National Drug Secretariat is subordinated directly to the President of the Republic with the status of Ministry.
