Impact of Addiction on Society Policy Discussion - Mission and Objectives
The Impact of Addiction on Society
The Global Addiction Conference is the meeting of the Global Addiction Association. The Association’s mission is to represent the intersection of policy, academia and clinical practice. Through shared experience, discussion and debate, it aims to create a goal for best practice in addiction treatment.
The Association aims to run a short Policy Only meeting each year focussing on a specific topic. These conferences will mainly cover issues of relevance at a society level and consider strategies to adopt at country or international level to alter the way that particular addictions are affecting society.
Plans are underway to run a Policy meeting discussing the impact of Addiction to Legal Substances (such as Prescription Pain Killers) in Europe. Already recognised as a major issue in the US, Europe is starting to mobilise and analyse the size of the problem.
