This is a pilot project which is being carried out by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare in five municipalities – Borlänge, Majorna-Linne in Gothenburg, Sandviken, Tyresö and Umeå — with the purpose of strengthening a comprehensive view  and cooperation between units in the municipality responsible for children, youth and families and units responsible for drug addiction and abuse. The study is carried out in the shape of a program theory evaluation   with both a formative and a summative approach.
