Substance use disorders are among the devastating problems worldwide; unfortunately we were endowed with little chance of handling the prevalence of substance use disorders and reducing their related harms. Lack of knowledge and biased opinions might be a cause for struggling with these complexities. The worst threats in this area are that we have recently encountered major changes in substance use patterns and the drug of choice as well as the age of first drug consumption significantly decreased.
The 10th International Congress of Addiction Sciences (ASC 2016) is a signature event showcasing the synergy and strength in joint academic partnership between different universities and organizations including Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS), University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences (USWR) and Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) in collaboration with other scientific and research centers in the country.
Observing lectures presented by eminent speakers, presenting outcomes of scientific researches by researchers, post graduates & under graduate students of pre-clinical, para-clinical & clinical departments and holding variety of workshops are key plans of this congress. Presenting special awards for Young Scientists, awards for the best researches on drug prevention, awards for the most practical research and gifts for selected posters are the other routes of achieving the goals of this congress. In addition, it has been expected over 2500 audiences will participate in this congress.
The 10th international addiction congress will be held in both Farsi and English. Simultaneous interpretation service is available for both languages.
