The Unspoken Shift from Quality to Quantity Standards in Substance Use(r) Treatment and Prevention: A Challenge to Unfinished Intervention Business

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A common flaw when dealing with substance use and misuse is the over-inclination to (re)-act; a reflexive "knee-jerk" and not a well-planned act which is theoretically and empirically informed. It seems that a shift from quantity-driven standards back to quality-driven standards would be best achieved by encouraging politicians, stock holders, and decision makers to question more, before financially supporting any prevention intervention.
