De såkalte «brukerorganisasjonene», som består av folk med egne erfaringer med skadelig rusbruk, spiller en stadig viktigere rolle i denne prosessen. PROMENTA-partnerne ved Institutt for sosiologi og samfunnsgeografi belyser dette, blant annet med basis i teori om såkalte «lay experts» og deres rolle i politikkutviklingen.
