Andrej Kastelic, MD, PhD, the President of the SEEA net – Network programs dealing with addiction & the organizer of the conference: “In recent years we have annually organized conferences and consultations where we presented the latest developments in the field of addiction and tried to prepare for the anticipated changes. Every other year we also organize a symposium, together with specialists in the treatment of hepatitis C, on the treatment of the disease among people who use drugs. As usually, we will host some of the most well-known international experts, to talk about some aspects of “non-chemical/process” addiction, re-treatment of persons who are taking new psychoactive substances and drugs for increasing our productivity, gaming and its addiction, and present their achievements and plans for the prevention and treatment of all types of addiction.”
