PORI diagnoses were developed in cooperation with local communities members/institutions. Each territory was analysed at three different levels: structural, communitarian and individual.
These three levels of analysis are fundamental, since interventions in the scope of psychoactive substances consumption require changes on the behaviours, knowledge, and beliefs (individual level), changes in the peer groups and social context where the individuals are integrated (communitarian level), as well as changes at the level of institutional responses available in the territory (structural level).

63 of the 92 selected territories were diagnosed. Diagnosis were made by IDT, I.P. local and regional structures (Centres of Integrated Responses and Regional Delegations) allowing to end a fundamental stage (Phase 4) for the definition of the PRI.
With the diagnosis, it was possible to identify, in the territories, problems / needs that were not yet satisfied. To fulfil these needs, IDT.IP offered technical and financial support to projects from Non Governmental Organizations (Phase 6).
In 2009, are going to be implemented 51 PRI, to fulfil 124 identified needs in several areas of mission of IDT – prevention (52), treatment (3), harm and risk reduction (31) and reintegration (38).
