The connection between homelessness and substance use is well recognised and an issue that impacts countries around the world. People who experience substance use related issues and homelessness are extremely vulnerable to a range of harms and can find it challenging to access appropriate support that will adequately meet their needs.
ADDICTOLOGY is a peer-reviewed international professional journal that publishes interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scientific studies on psychoactive substance use, behavioural addictions, and other related topics. It has been provided through Charles University in Prague and is now a collaborative development with ISSUP.
Articles in the ADDICTOLOGY Journal address a wide range of topics, including education, training, prevention intervention, recovery support research, public health initiatives, and a wide spectrum of substance use research.
It has been published since 2001. It is centred on an interdisciplinary approach to addictive substances and is affiliated with the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE). It is based on open-access principles, and it supports the principles of open science.
The journal aims to facilitate communication among experts in this domain, to provide a useful forum for professionals, and to publish current knowledge, both theoretically and practically. In addition to the printed form, the interactive section of this website provides a broader space for communication.
ISSUP is an official strategic partner in the provision of the Journal. This collaboration aims to make a substantial contribution to the field of drug demand reduction and aims to benefit researchers, health and education professionals and to ensure that it helps to have relevance and contribute to the link between researchers and practitioners and consequently to bridge the gap between science and practice.
