Cost of substance abuse Print

The cost of substance abuse is difficult to quantify as it encompasses the public health costs of diseases associated with drug dependence, crime and associated costs, and insurance costs that are borne by individuals and employers. The level of government spending on drug-related issues is also difficult to estimate as expenditure is spread across national, provincial and local government departments, agencies and statutory organisations.
