Addiction, because of its associated psychological and physical diseases, is producing increasing expenses through social burden and influencing the epidemiological situation of the whole population via sexual or simple intimitate social contacts.
Outstanding infectious diseases with a high incidence in drug addicts are tuberculosis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B and the classical notifiable venereal diseases.
Preventive measures are required, involving immunization and isolation.
HIV infection is another increasing problem in drug addicts.
