German Addiction Congress 2018
"Interdisciplinary addiction" is the motto of all addiction conventions to date, and this year's theme will once again characterize our congress. A broad spectrum of topics with contributions from addiction research, addiction therapy and care practice including their neighbouring and secondary disciplines is addressed here.
Addiction research and addiction therapy concern the individual and his family, social and socio-economic relations. Accelerated maturing of young people and societal change require the current expertise of many disciplines and disciplines in the treatment and prevention of addiction.
Medicine, psychology, social therapy, social sciences, pedagogy, social pedagogy and educational sciences make valuable contributions in our interdisciplinary field. The transfer of basic research results, e. g. on the development and treatment of addiction, into therapeutic practice requires an increasingly interdisciplinary orientation of our field of expertise.
New forms of consumption and addiction One of several thematic priorities this year is devoted to the research, therapy and care of addictive young people and young adults at risk of addiction. New forms of consumption and addiction, such as the increasing use of e-shishas and e-cigarettes, intoxication, new psychoactive substances and addiction disorders related to the Internet and other media are addressed.
In 2018, the German Society for Addiction Research and Drug Treatment celebrates its 40th anniversary. We pay tribute to this special occasion in special forums and speeches.
There are many good reasons to come to Berlin in September 2018!
