President’s Welcome

Welcome to the website for the European Federation of Addiction Societies (EUFAS).
Research in the field of addictive behaviors benefits not only from the interdisciplinary collaboration of professionals but also from networking across borders. The EUFAS is a young European non-profit federation aiming to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences between national and European associations. EUFAS’s first mission is to support and conduct research across a broad range of disciplines. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination and use of the results of that research to significantly improve prevention and treatment and to inform policy as it relates to drug abuse and addiction.
Click on the links on the website to find out more about the Federation, its members and activities. Together we can improve the knowledge about substance use disorders and contribute to a better provision of care.
