International Conference on Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment in Asia

Purpose and Programs

Substance abuse is a common problem faced by most countries in the world including Asia. Recognition and understanding of past trends and future directions of substance abuse serve as a basis for effective policies and practices to reduce drug problems. Through years of effort, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and scholars in Asia and across the world have developed many successful programs to combat substance abuse. These knowledge and experiences contributed significantly to our understanding of substance abuse as a social problem and the strategies to deal with it. The main purpose of this conference is to bring together government officials and policymakers, leading scholars, and substance abuse treatment providers of diverse backgrounds from Asian countries to discuss opportunities, strategies, and challenges in substance abuse research, prevention and treatment. While it focuses on Asia, the conference also aims at facilitating collaboration between Asian and non-Asian countries. We can learn much from the insights and experiences of scholars and professionals who are involved in substance abuse research and practices elsewhere in the world and from scientific evidence accumulated through research and program evaluations. Therefore, we will also welcome participants from other parts of the world who will bring international or comparative perspectives on substance abuse prevention and treatment or who will share information and ideas about developing effective policy responses to the problem of substance abuse.


The conference will focus on the following themes:

  1. Reducing drug-related crime (policing, preventing, controlling and regulating drug-related crime)
  2. Anti-drugs law
  3. Types, distributions, and trends of substance abuse
  4. Causes and consequences of substance abuse
  5. Prevention and treatment of substance abuse
  6. Adolescent substance abuse problems
  7. Collaboration on substance abuse research and practice
  8. Scientific advancement and methodology
