Sažetak
The Croatian Strategy for combating drug addiction was adopted by the Croatian government in 1996. It included the implementation of a balanced strategy to reduce drug demand and supply, as well as the so called "Croatian model" of drug treatment. Furthermore, in order to evaluate the performance of certain forms of substance abuse treatment (cost benefit analysis), the Croatian Society for Alcoholism and Other Addictions of the Croatian Medical Association and Croatian Reference Centre for Substance Abuse initiated the research entitled CROATIAN ADDICTION TREATMENT SURVEY (CATS). The goal was to explore the characteristics of the population of users of psychoactive substances and the specifics of the treatment of drug addicts in Croatia, as well as, experiences in the treatment of opiate addiction replacement therapy. Considering that the project involved three different groups of respondents, the entire project was divided into three smaller projects (CATS-PAC, CATS-USE and CATS-DOC) to make the data collection and analysis easier.In this paper, we will present the data from the sub-project CATS -USE, which included a sample of users who were at the time of testing used the services of non-governmental organizations implementing harm reduction programs. The sample comprised 237 adult drug users who used at least one of the substances specified in the questionnaire longer than 6 months prior to the research. The survey was conductedin partnership with the non-governmental organizations that were providing harm reduction programs in different regions of Croatia. For the purpose of this sub-project a special questionnaire of 26 questions was created and used to obtain, inter alia, data on socio-demographic characteristics of the sample, opinions about the current treatment, current use and misuse of other substances in addition to those officially provided, as well as the experience with the treatment of opiate addiction replacement therapy
