EPPIC focuses on drugs prevention policy and practice for young people aged between 15 and 24 who have been in contact with the criminal justice system. We will identify innovative prevention projects and examine the views of young people to find out more about experiences with intervention programmes.


EPPIC will cover research on prevention programmes in prison and community settings as well as forms of diversion and therapy in six European countries: UK, Italy, Denmark, Poland, Germany and Austria.
