Global Addiction Conference 2014

Global Addiction Conference 2014

The conference will focus on the "Impact of Addiction on Society". It will be held in Rome, from 24th-26th June 2014.

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, 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) … and 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 info@globaladdiction.org with a short summary of your area of interest. Please be sure to state which conference you are interested in.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rome.
