We are really excited that we can be in Chile for today's launch of our National Chapter! We look forward to working together with ISSUP Chile's host organisation La Sociedad de Neurología, Psiquiatría y Neurocirugía (SONEPSYN)
ISSUP Chile was established because it was felt there was a need for a focal point where researchers, policy makers and practitioners, working in the field of substance use and drug demand reduction in Chile, can collaborate ideas and carry forward evidence-based and ethical prevention, treatment and recovery practices.
The host organisation for ISSUP Chile is La Sociedad de Neurología, Psiquiatría y Neurocirugía de Chile (SONEPSYN), a non-profit scientific society, founded in 1932.
The main objectives of ISSUP Chile are to:
- Represent the national communities of substance use prevention, treatment and recovery professionals and aspiring professionals.
- Develop and deliver knowledge systems for evidence-based prevention, treatment and recovery.
- Offer communications and networking opportunities that will take place online and at ISSUP Chile events.
- Promote and support the international community of drug demand reduction professionals and aspiring professionals to ensure effective policy and practice in this field.
On becoming a member of ISSUP Chile, you will have access to a platform in which to share information regarding current trends on prevention, treatment and recovery throughout the country.
