The Global Addiction Conference is the annual meeting for the Global Addiction Association. Addiction represents one of the areas of medicine that is least understood, yet generates an enormous burden on society, the medical profession, carers and individual sufferers.

The Global Addiction Association is a knowledge-sharing facility for all those involved in the understanding and treatment of addiction. It offers the opportunity for all interested parties to link both on-line and at the conference. Traditionally the conference has been a clinical and research meeting. In Pisa at the 2013 Global Addiction and Europad Joint conference we introduced a third element with our Policy stream which enabled clinical, research and policy individuals to debate the ways in which society can improve its response to, and treatment of, addiction.
An important part of the Global Addiction conference are the specialist sessions developed and presented by our Association partners. For 2014 we are delighted to welcome Alice Rap, IDHDP, EURAD and EMCDDA as contributors.
