This special issue presents an overview of the first conceptualizations and methodological solutions developed for conducting a risk analysis for alcohol and illicit drugs. The contributions touch upon problems of measuring the prevalence of illicit drug use, problems of conceptualizing the patterns of drinking dimension in alcohol epidemiology, and problems of defining the baseline scenario of minimal risk against which avoidable and attributable burden is measured.
This publication will be a valuable instrument in the daily work of addiction specialists, of epidemiologists and health policy makers.
