About conference

Euroscicon takes the privilege to invite all the participants, speakers, students, delegates, sponsors, exhibitors from all over the world to attend “ 8th International Conference on Addiction Psychiatry” to be held during August 13-14 2018 at Madrid,  spain. This includes prompt keynote presentations, oral talks by speaker forum and young research forum , poster presentations, workshops and exhibitions. The conference will be focused on the theme Riveting Facts In Addiction Psychiatry & Contemporary Rehabilitation Methods.

Addiction psychiatry is a brain disease involves treatment of individuals living with chemical dependencies such as drugs, alcohol, and nicotine, disorders involving legal and illegal and other addictive substances.

People with a substance use disorder have distorted thinking, Changes in the brain’s wiring are what cause people to have intense cravings for the drug and make it hard to stop using the drug and it Show changes in judgment, decision making, learning, memory and behaviour control.

By treating with a good knowledge of physical health issues along with both psychologicl and physical treatment some chemical drug dependencies are required to work with people in order to stop or limit use to maintain their healthier state.Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with, treatment, and prevention of addiction disorders, using both medical and psychological therapies, and professional therapeutic interaction, psychiatrists will prescribe different solutions to the patient’s problem, if necessary medication will be given to the patient. There can also be a way of recovery for those who have attempted to cease their drugs or alcohol abuse without prior success.


1. Addiction

Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain and it means a person is totally addicted in one particular habbit. Dysfunction in these routes leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual expressions. This may include disorders involving many legal and illegal drugs, gambling, sex, food, and other impulse control disorders; this is redirected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.

  • Types of addiction
  • Neurobiology of substance use disorder
  • Drug tolerance
  • Alcohol detoxification utilizing chemotherapeutic agents
  • Symptom of addiction
  • Causes of addiction

2. Neurobiology of addiction

Addiction is a state in which a state  involves in a compulsive behavior, even when faced with negative values. This behavior is reinforcing, or satisfying, as we know. A major feature of addiction is the loss of control in warning intake of the addictive substance. The most recent research shows that the reward pathway may be even more important in the desire associated with addiction, compared to the reward itself. Scientists have educated a great deal about the biochemical, cellular, and molecular roots of addiction; it is clear that addiction is a disease of the brain. State that you will provide two examples of the contact between drugs that are addictive, their cellular objects in the brain, and the reward pathway.

  • The action of heroin (morphine)
  • Localization of opiate required sites within the brain and spinal cord
  • Morphine binding within the reward pathway
  • The action of cocaine
  • Inhaling vs smoking cocaine: different addictive liabilities
  • Localization of cocaine "binding sites"

3. Substance Use Disorder

It also known as drug use disorder is a state in which the use of one or more materials leads to a clinically significant impairment or distress. Although the term substance can state to any physical matter, 'substance' in this setting is partial to psychoactive drugs.. It refers to substance use disorders, which are defined as mild, moderate, or severe to indicate the level of severity, which is determined by the number of diagnostic principles met by an individual. This  disorders occur when the frequent habit of alcohol, drugs causes clinically and functionally important impairment, such as health problems, disability, and failure to meet major tasks at work, school, or home. According to the DSM-5, a diagnosis of substance use disorder is based on proof of impaired control, social impairment, risky use, and pharmacological criteria.

  •  Addiction
  •  Physical dependency
  •  Psychological dependency
  •  Detoxification
  •  Epidemiology

4. Impulse Control Disorders and Addiction

Impulse control disorders are regular psychiatric situations in which extravagant individuals typically report significant damage in social, and may incur legal and financial difficulties as well, and categorized by impulsivity- failure to resist a offer, an urge or an impulse. Many psychiatric disorders feature impulsivity, with substance- related disorders, behavioural addictions, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, antisocial personality disorder, border line personality disorder, conduct disorder, and some mood disorders.

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Mechanism
  • Frequent type of impulse disorder
  • Treatment

5. Alcoholism Addiction

Alcohol addiction is the most genuine type of issue intake, and describes a solid, frequently wild, want to drink. A dipsomaniac is a man, while alcohol abuse is the sickness. Sufferers of Alcohol addiction will often put drinking most importantly different commitments, including work and family, and may develop a physical resilience or knowledge withdrawal side effects on the off chance that they stop.

Alcohol exploitation is at times known as Alcohol habit or Alcohol reliance. It's marginally extraordinary to 'unsafe drinking' which is an irregular example of drinking which can cause harm your good. A case of insecure drinking will be drinking unreasonably at a gathering, and gambling a fall or contention. This sample may form into Alcohol abuse if that sort of insecure drinking turns into a propensity and occurs all the time.

  •  Treatment
  •  Drug addiction
  •  Smoking addiction and cessation
  •  Gambling and casino addiction
  •  Tobacco, Cocaine and cannabis

6. Dual Diagnosis: Substance Abuse and Mental Illness

Dual diagnosis occurs when someone has both a mental disorder and an alcohol or drug difficult. These conditions occur together frequently Dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders is a term for someone who practices a mental illness because of indulge drinking, or the person abusing heroin during periods of mania. Alcohol and drug problem be likely to occur with depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, personality disorders, etc. The signs of substance abuse include: sudden changes in behaviour, withdrawal from friends and family, loss of control over use of materials, developing tolerance and removal symptoms. The consequences can be numerous and harsh. Persons with co-occurring disorders have a statistically greater propensity for violence, medication noncompliance, and failure to respond to treatment than customers with just substance abuse or a mental illness. These problems also extend out to these users families, friends and co-workers.

  •  Depression
  •  Bipolar disorder
  •  Anxiety disorders
  •  Schizophrenia
  •  Personality disorder

7. Depression and Anxiety

The damaging impacts of drugs can duplicate dysfunctional behaviour in ways that can be hard to recognize from emotional sickness. Drugs instigated mind issue is particular from autonomous co-happening mental distributes in that all or the vast majority of the psychiatric signals are the immediate consequence of substance utilize. It can’t express that substance-prompted disturbs block co-happening mental scatters, just that the particular side effect group at a particular point in time is more probable the after effect of substance pushes, miss handle, inebriation, or with drawl than of important emotional instability. Some basic substance related mind issue are nervousness, depression and insomnia, schizophrenia, dementia, rest issue and psychosis.

  •  Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  •  Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  •  Depression treatment and management
  •  “Myth-conceptions”, about anxiety
  •   Suicide and prevention

8. Mental Health

Mental health is a close to psychological well- being, or an absenteeism of mental illness. It is the “psychological state of someone who is working at a acceptable level of emotional and behavioural adjustment. According to world health organisation (WHO), mental health includes “subjective well-being, professed self-efficacy, autonomy, competence, intergenerational dependence, and self-actualization of one’s intellectual and expressive potential, among others.” It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps control how we handle stress, relate to others, and sort choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through maturity.

9. Behavioral Addiction

It is a system of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non drug related behavior at times called a natural reward. Addiction can occur in many methods. Often, it is assumed that physical dependence considered by withdrawal symptoms is required in order of someone to be diagnosed with an addiction disorder, but the fact is that it can ensue with all the negative penalties in a person’s life minus the physical issues faced by people who compulsively engage in drug and alcohol abuse.

  • Symptoms
  • Types of behavioral addiction

10. Co-Occurring Addiction and Psychiatric Disorders

Though the symptoms of one disorder may precede the other, both disorders tend to impair one another, making it impossible to extricate the symptoms caused by one disorder from the other. For example, persons who attempt to escape symptoms of depression related with a mood or personality disorder by taking medicine painkillers or shooting heroin will quickly find that though this may be effective the first few times, in addition to the symptoms of depression, they will soon be stressed with other disorders.

  •  Substance induce mental disorders
  •  Anxiety disorder, affective disorder
  •  Attention/hyperactivity disorder
  •  Integrating psychosocial services with pharmacotherapies
  •  Posttraumatic stress disorder 
  • Substance use disorder comorbidity

11. Pain and Addiction

There are a lot of popular miscalculations in surrounding pain management and addiction. Many doctors are not prescribing scheduled pain medications like Vicodin, Percocet or Darvocet because they worry about their patients becoming addicted to these painkillers. Some medical professionals are willing to prescribe controlled pain medications to patients who are being treated for cancer or under hospital care, but they’re cautious about prescribing to patients who suffer from severe pain caused by a car accident, arthritis or a spinal cord injury.

If you feel frustrated by your efforts to get a doctor to sufficiently treat your pain, or you’re self-medicating because you can’t get the pain help you need from a physician, you’re not alone. Effective pain managing requires an understanding of the nature of chronic pain, a will to listen to the patient’s reports of discomfort and the ability to distinguish between drug tolerance and dependence.

  •  Psychological issues in the management of pain
  •  Opioid therapy of pain
  •  No opioid treatments in the management of pain
  •  Legal and regulatory considerations in pain management           

12. Children and Adolescents

It is an intermediate stage of physical and psychological development that generally occurs during the period from puberty to legal adulthood (age of majority). Puberty is commonly related with the teenage years, but its physical, psychological or cultural expressions may begin before and end later. For example, puberty now typically begins during preadolescence, mainly in females. Physical growth (particularly in males), and cognitive growth can extend into the early twenties. Thus age bids only a rough sign of adolescence, and scholars have created it hard to agree upon a precise importance of adolescence.

  •   Preventing substance abuse among children and adolescents
  •   Adolescent risk and protective factors psychosocial
  •   Neurobiology of addiction from a developmental perspective
  •   Adolescent cigarette smoking
  •   Adolescents attitudes toward alcohol and other drugs

13. Addiction Treatment

Drug treatment is planned to help addicted individuals stop obsessive drug seeking and use. Treatment can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for different lengths of time. Because drug addiction is naturally a chronic disorder categorized by occasional reverts, a temporary, one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For many, treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions and regular monitoring. To have a successful treatment we have detoxification (the process by which the body rids itself of a drug), behavioral counselling, medication (for opioid, tobacco, or alcohol addiction), evaluation and treatment for co-occurring mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, long-term follow-up to prevent relapse.

  •  Substance abusers with appropriate treatment
  •  Individual psychodynamic psychotherapy
  •  Cognitive therapy
  •  Group therapy
  •  Family therapy
  •  Motivational interviewing

14. Addiction Medication

Several medications have been found to be effective in treating addiction to opioids, alcohol, or nicotine in adults, although none of these medications have been approved by the FDA to treat adolescents. In most of the circumstances, only preliminary evidence exists for the effectiveness and safety of these medications in people under 18, there is no evidence on the neurobiological impact of these medications on the developing brain. However, despite the relative lack of evidence, some health care providers do use medicines “off-label” when treating adolescents (especially older adolescents) who are addicted to opioids, nicotine, or (less commonly) alcohol. Fresher compounds continue to be studied for possibly handling substance use disorders in adults and adolescents, but none other than those listed here have shown conclusive results.

  •   Antabuse
  •   Campral
  •   Neurontin
  •   Revia
  •   Suboxone
  •   Topamax
  •   Provigil

15. Neuroanatomical of Drug Support and Addiction

To understand the neuro anatomy and psychopharmacology of addiction, we must understand the normal methods and decision making, and impulse control. From here, we can scan the compulsivity, excessive intake, and the resultant harm, which are central to addiction. The structure most often stated in the context of drug abuse is closely associated with the limbic system, lateral hypothalamus, basal ganglia and frontal cortical regions. The limbic system has been categorized as highly interconnected, phylogentically older regions of the forebrain that appear to form the only major route for information transfer between the neocortex and the hypothalamus.

  •   Psych stimulants
  •   Opioids
  •   Cannabinoids
  •   Pathologic gambling
  •   Neurocognition

16. Pharmacology

Pharmacology is the study of drugs, where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from within body) and they relate with other molecule in the body and how they affect the body which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to include these endogenous and exogenous   bioactive type . This field of study can be broken down into two smaller pieces: pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

  •   Sedative hypnotic addiction
  •   Opioid dependence
  •   Cocaine, methamphetamine 
  •   Alcohol rehabilitation
  •   Opioid maintenance treatment

17. Behavioral Interventions

Behavioral interventions are interventions considered to affect the actions that individuals take with regard to their health. The typical medical intervention is a clinical trial of a particular drug, surgery, or device. In the trial, doctors provide different services to different people, and then estimate the outcomes. Variation in patient behavior is generally rejected; a strong emphasis is placed on making sure that patients do exactly what is estimated from them. With behavioural interventions, in difference, patient behavior is the key and the goal is to change it. In considering issues such as the high rate of needless illness (McGuiness and Foege, 1993) or racial disparities in health, behavioral interventions are key. This takes a chance about why some interventions are more successful than others.

  •  Group therapies
  •  Enhancing motivation to change
  •  Individual psychotherapy
  •  Network therapy
  • Therapeutic communities


Market Analysis


Addiction psychiatry aims to treat people with addiction topics along with co-occurring psychiatric disorders, otherwise known as patients with identification. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency estimates that over 23 million Americans (age 12 and older) are addicted to alcohol and other drugs. The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimated the market for addiction cure at about $35 billion for 2014.Since 2006, private equity firms have invested more than $2.2 billion in substance abuse treatment companies.

10 Most Common Addictions

Tobacco (nicotine) – Over 40 Million

Nicotine addiction is not as risky as other addictions. Tobacco use rights more lives than any that of any other addictive substance. Many cigarette smokers cannot quit despite knowing smoking’s impact on their health. Normal to quit but being unable to is a tell-tale sign of addiction.

Alcohol – 18 Million

Its legitimate status, alcohol’s potential for abuse opens users up to many health risks and possible addiction. Alcohol abuse has numerous negative consequences. In addition to deaths from liver disease and alcohol overdose, drunk driving dues thousands of lives every year.

Marijuana – 4.2 Million

It is the most commonly used illegal substance this cause short-term memory and learning, the ability to focus, and coordination. It also increases heart rate, can damage the lungs, and may increase the danger of psychosis in vulnerable people. The legalization of marijuana in some states has made the drug’s use more socially acceptable.

Painkillers – 1.8 Million

Drugs like codeine, Vicodin and OxyContin are commonly given to treat pain. Painkillers prescription station does not mean they aren’t addictive. Most patients who become addicted to prescription painkillers don’t notice they have a problem until they try to stop use.

Cocaine – 821,000

The failure is slow, however, with an estimated 821,000 Americans still addicted as of 2011. Crack cocaine, which is low-priced and stronger than regular cocaine, is responsible for many crippling addictions and ruined lives.

Heroin – 426,000

Heroin’s stark withdrawal symptoms make beating a heroin addiction a difficult task. Treating heroin addiction typically requires a combination of therapy and medications to help manage symptoms of withdrawal and thirsts.

Types of Addiction Treatment and Costs


Patient detox ranges from $1,000 to $1,500 in total. Most inpatient rehabs contain detox in the cost of a program. The exact cost of detox depends on whether it’s part of an inpatient program and the type of drug addiction being preserved. Substances with dangerous detox side effects require more careful observing, making the price higher.

Inpatient Rehab

Some inpatient rehabs may cost around $6,000 for a 30-day program. Well-known centres frequently rate up to $20,000 for a 30-day program. For those requiring 60- or 90-day programs, the total usual of costs could range anywhere from $12,000 to $60,000.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient platforms for minor to sensible addictions are cheaper than inpatient rehab. Many cost $5,000 for a three-month program. Some outpatient programs, such as the program at Hazelden Betty Ford, cost $10,000. The price tag depends on how often the individual visits the centre each week.


The type of action and medications needed marks the price tag on rehab. Some people don’t need prescription for their addiction. Medications most often treat alcohol and opiate addiction. Year-long methadone usage for heroin users costs around $4,700.

The Cost of Addiction

An alcoholic who drinks a 12-pack a day consistently for a year spends over $3,000. This cost doesn’t include possible legal issues that can cost thousands more. It’s harder to estimate the price of illegal drug addiction, but it can be much higher. Some former heroin users have described spending tens of thousands of dollars on their addiction.

Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications


These are usually given for pain relief. Commonly prescribed opioids include hydrocodone oxycodone, morphine, fentanyl, and codeine. In the United States, more individuals now die from opioid sedative overdoses than from heroin and cocaine combined.


 Methylphenidate and amphetamines are drugs commonly given for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).


These are usually given to help sleep or to reduce anxiety. As measured by national surveys, drugs are often categorized as sedatives or tranquilizers. Sedatives primarily include barbiturates but also include sleep medications such as Ambien and Lunesta. Anaesthetics primarily contain benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax, but also include muscle relaxants and other anti-anxiety medicines.

“Syrup,” “Purple Drank,” “Sizzurp,” or “Lean”

Describes beverage mixed with prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine these cough syrups are available by medicine only. Consumers may also flavour the mixture with hard sweeties. Drinking this combination has become increasingly popular among some personalities and youth in several areas of the country. Codeine is an opioid that can create easing and joy when consumed in sufficient quantities.

New Advances in Addiction Medicine

The exploitations of legal and illegal drugs remain one of the major medical problems in the world today. Cannabis remains by far the most widely used drug, monitored by amphetamine-type stimulants, opiate and cocaine users. Alcohol taking advantage and alcoholism annoys nearly 10% of the general population both in the United States (McGinnis and Foege, 1993) and in Europe (Hupkens et al., 1993).

Drug and alcohol abuse have many medical imports. Health effects may range between cardiomyopathies, immune impairment, endocrine disorders, metabolic and nutritional disorders, liver and gastrointestinal diseases, cancer disease, neuropsychiatric complications to name a few, so all kinds of surgeons could be involved in the management of these patients. Medical methods continue to develop with new findings in pharmacology, molecular genetics, and immunology.

Certainly, in the last three decades, our increased information about the molecular, biological and social aspects of addiction has enabled us to improve the management and existence of these patients. For example, the discovery of the neurobiological basis of addiction and of different neural paths involved in drug and alcohol abuse led to recognize new pharmacological approaches to treatment that can be matching with psychosocial treatments. Furthermore, there are new advances in pharmacogenetics that can bring advancing to era of personalized medicine to the addictions field. New scenes in vaccine research also promise to improve both the prevention and treatment of addictive disorders. All this scientific progress was, and shall continue to be, possible due to the rapid growth of research in the field.

Borderlines in Addictive Disorders will be at the cutting-edge of publishing papers that will shape our understanding and the treatment of addictive diseases now and in the future. The scope of the journal is very broad and ranges from the laboratory bench to society.

Statistics of Addiction in America

Addiction is more public than many realize. There were around 20.6 million people in the United States over the age of 12 with an addiction in 2011.

•           Over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 have an habit (excluding tobacco).

•           100 people die every day from drug overdoses. This rate has increased in the past 20 years.

•           Over 5 million alternative room visits in 2011 were drug related.

•           2.6 million People with addictions have a dependence on both alcohol and illicit drugs.

•           9.4 million People in 2011 reported driving under the influence of illicit drugs.

•           6.8 million People with an addiction have a mental disorder.

•           A rate of illegal drug use is highest among those aged 18 to 25.

•           Over 90% of those with an addiction started drinking, smoking or using illegal drugs before the age of 18.

Alcohol Statistics

Alcoholism is one of the most public addictions affecting Americans. However, the noted rates of alcoholism are decreasing (18.1 million people in 2002 to 16.7 million in 2011), but the addiction is still a cause for concern.

•           Binge drinking is more common in men; 9.1% of men 12 and older reported heavy drinking 5 or more days in a month, while 2.6% of women described this.

•           Over 11% of Americans have driven under the guidance.

•           Out of 16.6 million people with alcoholism, 2.6 million were also needy on an illicit substance.

•           It is expected that over 95% of those who need treatment for alcoholism do not feel they need treatment.

•           More people receive cure for alcohol than any other substance.

•           Over 30% of those who received treatment in 2011 reported using public or private health insurance to pay for cure.

Tobacco and Nicotine Statistics

Tobacco products have the highest rates for dependence. There are several factors that underwrite to this, such as availability. There are more resources than ever to help you quit.
