Substance Use

Use of addictive substances impacts several hundred million people worldwide. The United Nations World Drug Report 2020 estimates that in the period 2009–2018 the number of past-year users of any drug grew from 210 million to 269 million globally, representing an increase of more than 25%. Among the 269 million, 35 million suffer from drug use disorders, with one in seven being able to access treatment.
