"Over half of the rattfylleristerna that kills has a substance abuse problem, shows Some major scrutiny."
"the abuse And pointed often out that the reason that people continue to commit crimes."
"at the same time sentenced get into care instead of prison."
"– They must be offered a way back in society and then have the penalty to interact with the healthcare sector, " says Gerhard Larsson, who led the big missbruksutredningen."
"Many of them start with drugs, even as teenagers, are homeless, lack a job and have not been completed in school. Aftonbladet's scrutiny of the people who affected the running death of another human being in traffic shows that over half of them have a definite addiction. Something that stood out in, inter alia, frivårdsyttranden and judgments. It is about both drugs and alcohol."
"A clear majority of the abusive perpetrators in Aftonbladet's review has been convicted of an offence in a large number of occasions. And in frivårdsyttranden singled often the abuse as the underlying cause of the crime. "
"But the ability of addicts to get treatment varies greatly depending on where in the country you live, says Olivia Wigzell, director-general of the national Board of health."
"We see large variations across the country and it can be about in what extent the use of twitter and facebook, or how well-coordinated care chains have, but also how to let the patient to gain influence over the care or what type of follow-up," says Wigzell."
"In Sweden parts of the day the municipality and the county councils the responsibility for substance abuse. But despite the fact that they have the legal obligation to cooperate for the good of patients as missing one-half of the municipalities, agreements for how it should look, according to the health Board."
"It is serious because we have requirements in the legislation on health care, on equal terms and it is very important that the availability and quality of efforts is not determined by where you live," says Olivia Wigzell, director-general of the national Board of health."
"Sweden has among the highest figures in Europe in terms of mortality among drug users, according to the EMCDDA, and about 75 per cent of the inmates in the Correctional system have substance abuse problems. According to Lars Håkan Nilsson, medical advisor in the Correctional service, is the care far too unequal, depending on where in the country the addict is resident. He takes up underhållsbehandlingspatienter as an example and says that a large majority of those who receive the treatment in either of region Skåne and Stockholm county council."
"– It means that half of the patients are distributed between Stockholm and Skåne and the other 19 county councils have the care of the rest. Many of the county councils also have very long queues to get treatment, " says Nilsson."
"Norway: Sweden is falling behind."
"In Denmark, an addict seeking help for their dependence to be guaranteed to investigation and treatment is initiated within 14 days and in Norway within four weeks. In Sweden, there is not any such time limit, apart from the general care guarantee, which applies to all patients, regardless of ailment. Gerhard Larsson, who among other things was behind the big missbruksutredningen commissioned by the government and was presented in 2011, says it is important to ensure that people will quickly into treatment and he is critical of people with addiction can not be guaranteed faster treatment."
"– unlike if you have a heart problem, for example, it requires motivation to overcome addictions. And such motivation is a perishable product. If you knock on the door to get help but must wait three months before you get it, you can lose motivation and begin to guzzle, or experimenting with drugs again. I think that there must be an obligation to take hold of the maximum after four weeks, " says Gerhard Larsson."
"Thomas Clausen, a professor at the Oslo university centre for addiction research, says that it is normal in Norway is that the addict get the treatment within a week."
"– In Norway they have built out the capacity and availability faster and to a greater extent than what you have in Sweden. Today, it is standard practice that there is a waiting time anywhere in the country so it is an edge we have in front of Sweden, " he says and adds:" the
"– The faster someone can get to the example, the LARO-treatment reduces the risk of morbidity, mortality, and crime rates, so there is no reason that people should go longer than necessary, and wait for the treatment if you qualify for it."
"substance abuse – for the outdated"
"Gerhard Larsson believes that substance abuse in Sweden need to be modernised and that the legislation is not adapted to the fact that addiction is a disease, and for this you need the treatment to break an addiction."
"– the Interplay between punishment and care has been very limited in Sweden. If the people running murder somebody when they are full, and will be judged so it is often enough not to lock them, but they must be offered a way out, and then have the penalty to interact with the health care. For example, in the Netherlands, it is included in the punishment that you should turn to a vårdinstans, " he says."
