How do we keep healthcare affordable and at the same time feasible? Will there be
sufficient finance, and enough people to offer care? With these issues often the
theme of sustainable care comes forward. Sustainable care is often interpreted as
care that promotes the health of citizens, that maintains the high quality of care and
improve where possible, and at the same time highlighting the cost of care.
This applies to the care for addicts in the Netherlands no different. Also within the
addiction care we are looking for sustainable solutions. Under sustainable we mean
programs that work: promoting healing, supporting the recovery process and
thereby preventing relapses. Sustainability also means it delivers more than just
individual welfare. Here we can think of the social impact, inconvenience and
insecurity, but also to the next generation. Especially on this last topic this article
focuses. What is needed to work more sustainable and treat the addiction with an
eye and focus on the next generation? This is about transgenerational transmission
of addiction: the addiction is passed from (grand) parent to child.
To further develop sustainability in the care for addiction is to get a clear picture of
the children of addicted parents. There should be more attention to early detection
of the possible dependence of older (and possibly child). In addition, attention
should be to educate and make the timely discussion of the risks and possible
existing education problems
