Background of this study is the increase in consumption of cocaine and crack in European capitals as a considerable problem according to representatives of the addiction aid and to experts in charge of health politics The existing offers in Europe as well as the present local concepts of health and order politics in the European capitals are up to now not sufficiently prepared for these new challenges. The study's aim is the formulation of recommendations capable to be put into practice for adaptation of help offers to three groups of persons with an intensive and problematic cocaine and crack consumption. For this aim, an extensive empirical stocktaking will be carried out in nine major European cities, including consumers as well as experts from the help services and from communal social and health politics.
