Global Conference on Addiction Medicine and Behavioral Health, August 22-24, 2019 | London, UK

Dear congress visitors, it is a pleasure to extend to you words of welcome to this conference. In the last three decades Addiction Medicine has evolved from a few physicians who used methadone to treat opioids use disorder and offered disulfiram to the victims of alcoholism to a discipline that has a expanding pharmacopeia. We now have medication that can support the recovery of those who struggle with opioids, alcohol and tobacco. We now have a better understanding of those factors that contribute to addiction and in many cases have the skills to mitigate those factors. The practitioners of this subspecialty have become increasingly aware that there is so much more to addiction than addiction. In order to treat the addiction, we must understand and treat the whole patient. That is what makes addiction medicine exciting and rewarding and leads the addictionist to a never ending pursuit of new knowledge. Welcome to a conference that promise to give you that.

Yours Sincerely
Leo O. Lanoie

Dear Colleagues,
I was surprised to read recently that the manufacture of pharmaceuticals is a major source of CO2 emissions and thus of global warming. My concerns were more local – that I was being asked to see more and more patients who, because of ‘dual diagnosis’, were being prescribed medications that might actually worsening their addiction to alcohol and drugs. At this conference I look forward to hearing others’ views of the vexed question of comorbidity – how can we better disentangle self-medication for a mental disorder from the sometimes devastating effects on the emotions – indeed on the brain – of misuse of substances…..and thus how better to help our patients.

Yours Sincerely

Dear participants, I am so pleased to welcome you all to the 2019 Global Conference on Addiction Medicine and Behavior Health. I’m looking forward to the robust exchange of ideas and learning from you. My scholarship is in the fields of interpersonal violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, human trafficking, and domestic & dating violence. According to the WHO’s 2001 report on violence and health, sexual assault is a global issue. It is in our cities, towns, neighborhoods, backyards, our homes, and at our universities. I feel privileged to have led a study at the University of Texas Systems that included 14 associated universities. I will share the findings and methodology from this study during my keynote. Our research is unprecedented in its scope, duration, and depth of understanding on these issues as they relate to college students. I look forward to seeing you there. Safe travels.

Yours Sincerely
Noel Busch-Armendariz
