The International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR)

The International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) was established in 2016 and incorporated as a not-for-profit organisation in March, 2018. The goal of ICUDDR is to support development of competencies and skills of addiction professionals, to meet an increasing demand for prevention and treatment services. Toward this end, the purpose of ICUDDR is to facilitate networking among universities to promote high-quality education and training in the field of addiction prevention and treatment. It also pursues related applied addictions research, outreach and advocacy. ICUDDR supports the formation of academic programmes in addiction studies at a time when demand is at an all-time high. Currently, many institutions are establishing addiction specialties in medicine, and many physicians and other health care professionals could benefit from continuing education to prevent and treat substance use disorders. The creation of effective academic programmes in addiction studies hinges on the awareness that new and enhanced prevention and treatment systems and services require a specialised and multidisciplinary workforce that is educated and trained to deliver these services.
