The 6th International Drug Abuse Research Society (IDARS) Meeting will bring together basic scientists and clinical investigators from the international community to share new conceptual insights into alcohol abuse, substance abuse, and addiction treatment. Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a global problem that is prevalent in rich and poor countries alike. Opiates, methamphetamine, alcohol, cocaine and MDMA are the most widely abused drugs in Europe, North and South America, and in Asian countries. These drugs are not only addictive, but they also cause neurotoxicity in humans and laboratory animals.
Ten sessions will accommodate 4-5 speakers, 20-30 minutes per presentation. An 11th session will be an open poster session followed by poster discussion.
