Addiction Psychiatry

Addiction psychiatry is a specialized field of psychiatry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of substance use disorders (SUDs) and other forms of addiction, such as gambling or internet addiction. Addiction psychiatrists are medical doctors with additional training and expertise in addiction medicine. Recent research in addiction psychiatry has uncovered promising findings regarding the efficacy of novel medications in treating opioid use disorder, reducing cravings, and preventing relapse. Additionally, studies have highlighted the importance of integrated care models that address both addiction and co-occurring mental health issues to improve long-term recovery outcomes. Advances in neuroimaging have also provided insights into the neural mechanisms underlying addictive behaviors, paving the way for more targeted interventions. This session is planned to explore a variety of essential subjects within the field of addiction psychiatry.
