Lisbon Addictions 2019. Third European Conference on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies

Lisbon Addictions 2019, the third European Conference on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies, is a multidisciplinary conference that provides a forum for networking across the addictions. It will take place in the Lisbon Congress Centre from 23–25 October 2019.

The overarching theme for 2019 is ‘The future of addictions: new frontiers for policy, practice and science’. The conference will therefore showcase cutting-edge research to help characterise, understand and respond to addiction and addictive behaviours.

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) has launched a new technical cooperation project called ‘EU4Monitoring Drugs’ (EU4MD). This 3-year project is funded by the European Union for countries in the European Neighbourhood Policy area (ENP) and supports the improvement of national and regional capacity to identify and respond to drug-related security and health threats.

This session will pin-point main emerging drug trends in the East ENP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) and their neighbours by looking at changes in drug use and markets, and reflecting on possible impact and links to social and political challenges in the region.

Assessment of NPS use in Moldova and Belarus will present Eliza Kurcevic, Program Officer, EHRA. These results will be presented for the first time in public.
