Abstract: This publication is for planners, policy-makers and service providers in European countries who wish to obtain, at relatively low cost, reliable information on drug-related problems in order to develop appropriate responses and subsequently monitor the situation. The purposes for which data are collected and important basic concepts underlying data collection in this field are considered. The authors describe a range of sources of information that can be used, provide an overview of different methods, their advantages and limitations and give concrete suggestions on how to collect and make the best use of existing data. Advice is given on how to set up an information system which can meet the future requirements of treatment and prevention policies, provided with examples of data-gathering instruments
