The Department of Addictology is focused on research into substance use and activities which may lead to the development of addicted behaviour, as well as the investigation and development of innovative approaches to the prevention, treatment and social reintegration of those affected by such behaviour. The Department comprises a multidisciplinary team of professionals representing different branches of science and research approaches. It has wide experience with quantitative and qualitative research in the field of substance abuse. The research priorities are mainly: drug policy, the treatment of substance users, the primary prevention of drug use and addictive behaviour, law enforcement and the penal system, and the risk behaviour of substance users. In addition, the Department also realises educational and development projects, the main objective of which is to contribute to the development of an integrated system of continuing education in the field.
