Research Group Addiction Science

Addiction as a friend

The research group of Addiction Science focuses primarily on addicted people with complex problems, people whose parents are addicts too and people who are known to the police and the law. These groups of addicted people have been the subject of attention because their social network has often been hit hard or disappeared altogether. The providers of care to these groups regularly find themselves in a situation where they are unable to help for a number of reasons. For example, because the problems are complex or because a large number of different parties are involved in the care provided to these addicted people. Also, healthcare budgets are reduced, making changes necessary to healthcare, and transitions are imminent in the healthcare sector too (under the Social Support Act (Wet maatschappelijke ondersteuning - Wmo), the Youth Act (Jeugdwet) and the Participation Act (Participatiewet)), which require care providers to change the way they operate.
