Rome, November 23 - Public support services for
drug abusers and other addicts saw a 23% rise in users between
2005 and 2010, with a 691% increase in the number of users with
gambling addictions, according to a study by the public
administration arm of the main left-wing trade union
confederation CGIL, presented on Friday.
Service operators also registered a 57% increase in users
over the same period as a result of cocaine addiction, of 60% as
a result of alcoholism and of 62% due to the abuse of 'other
substances', the research found.
The increase in workload concerned both treatment and
prevention services.
Over 900 operators working in 159 service centres across 16
regions were interviewed by questionnaire for the study.
