In the Greenlandic study we evaluate the implementation and effect of the national treatment option to addiction of alcohol, hash and gamble in Greenland. The treatment option started in 2016 and are based on current evidence and best practice from western countries, yet there is not much knowledge from populations like the Greenlandic.
The study investigates the implementation process and the barriers and facilitators towards the treatment option. The study also investigates if the established treatment option matches the demanded treatment. Further, the study examines the effect of the treatment option before and after the implementation by comparing chosen parameters among two groups at treatment start, ending and follow-up.
