Network practise is important in the care of addictive pathologies. It aims to fulfill patient needs on a social and health level, as part of a concertive approach from the different health workers. Co-ordinated practise seems to provide an adapted and proven response for more than twenty years now, but has only recently been recognised as such by the health authorities. It was originally initiated by militant care workers in response to a daily reality too complex to be managed alone. The bringing together of experience and competencies, an adapted response to the demands in a context of dependency, patient care facilitated by exchanges, complementarily and the sharing of competencies are the objectives of a rich and beneficial network. However, it seems necessary to supplement with financial, human and legal help in order maintain the continuity and improve this novel approach.
