Development of Recovery Management Protocols with Study Tour to Drug Treatment and Recovery Facilities in Spain for Afghanistan - Evidence-based and Human-centred Drug Dependence Treatment and Care 

Substance/Drug Use Disorders (S/DUDs) constitute a public health, developmental and security problem both in industrialized and industrializing countries worldwide. Nowadays, scientific evidences have indicated S/DUDs are multi-factorial brain disease and associated with health problems, poverty, violence, criminal behaviour, and social exclusion. Strengthening prevention and treatment for people with S/DUDs is an essential demand reduction strategy of significant public health importance, which is a cornerstone of the 2016 United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem (UNGASS) outcome document and has been specifically set as Target 3.5 of Goal 3, under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Moreover, drug prevention and treatment would also contribute to the achievement of SDG 5 “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls”, Target 16.1 of SDG 16 “Significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere”, Target 16.2 "End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children" and Target 16.4 “By 2030, significantly reduce illicit financial flows, combat all forms of organized crime”. As scientific studies have explicitly demonstrated that evidence-based drug treatments significantly reduce impulsive violence and criminal behaviours of the people with S/DUDs against family members including women and other ordinary citizens, these interventions contribute to not only improvement of public health but also strengthening of public safety.
