As our hyper-globalized world brings people, substances, ideas, and potential sources of addiction closer together than ever, researchers, care providers, academics and professionals need to look at addiction studies in a new, dynamic light.
This two-week Summer Institute seeks to provide an interdisciplinary approach and lens to the study of addiction.
The programme is built around four themes:
- an overview of policies and the history of the concept of addiction
- contemporary prevention services
- the current state of affairs
- an assessment of treatment innovations
