Cochrane Drugs and Alcohol Group


Welcome to the web site of the Cochrane Collaborative Drugs and Alcohol Review Group (CDAG). The CDAG, formed in 1998, has the editorial base in Rome at the Department of Epidemiology of ASL RM E, Lazio Regional Health System.

As part of the Cochrane collaboration, the group is aimed to produce and disseminate systematic reviews of trials on the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of the problematic use of drugs and alcohol. These reviews are published quarterly on The Cochrane Library and are updated periodically to incorporate new research as it becomes available.

To date the Group published 62 reviews, one overview of reviews, 31 protocols and registered 16 titles.

The Group also maintains a specialised register of trials relevant to the scope of the group’s work.
