Ethnic minorities and addiction. A statement of affairs about the extent and nature of addiction problems among ethnic minorities in the Netherlands. Operating procedures of and bottlenecks in addiction care for ethnic minorities

For this study relevant literature - both scientific literature, addiction care annual reports and project evaluations of addiction care projects - about the extent and nature of addiction problems of some important ethnic minorities in the Netherlands was compiled and analyzed. Besides key informers were interviewed by telephone about the same subject. Ethnic minorities involved were people from Surinam, the Dutch Antilles, Morocco, Turkey and the Moluccans of the former Dutch Indies, current Indonesia. Like in other countries the socio-economic position of ethnic minorities in the Netherlands is worse than of Dutch autochthons. Youngsters from ethnic minorities are therefore more vulnerable to become excessive drug users. Half of the Dutch �hard drug� population, people who use opiates on a daily basis are supposed to be of ethnic minority origin. Dutch addiction care institutions only have contacts with a small part of this hidden population. Besides, clients from ethnic minority origin have less contact with addiction care institutions than autochthonous clients and tend to drop out during treatment. Finally, only short-term projects tailored to clients from ethnic minorities are developed and carried out within Dutch addiction care.
