A worldwide Association and conference facilitating the sharingof knowledge about the understanding and treatment of addiction
In 2013, the joint Global Addiction and Europad conference focussed considerably on all aspects of Opioid addiction.
For 2014, in Europe, Global Addiction will retain its focus on the impact on society of addiction, including policy initiatives targeted at dealing with the difficulties associated with addictions.
In addition, however it will also include a considerable focus on the problems caused by alcohol addiction to the individual, and how to treat these. We have also seen a considerable rise in recognition and prominence of a number of so called ‘novel’ addictions such as video game addictions, sex addiction, designer/club drugs, prescription drug addictions (eg. Opioid pain killers, sleeping pills, NSAIDS etc), gambling, cosmetic addictions (eg. amphetamine for weight loss, cosmetic surgery etc) … submissions on these topics will be well regarded for the conference.
The committee is currently considering and accepting submissions on all these topics and creating the programme for the three day conference. To join the committee please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short précis of your area of interest, please be sure to state which conference you are interested in. We look forward to welcoming you to Roma.
