Drug & Behavioural Addictions: COVID-19 & Beyond

There is an immediate need to pool an understanding of how the pandemic has impacted alcohol intake, drug use, and behavioural addictions. Collating this knowledge can help doctors and mental health professionals improve patient care by being aware of what’s happening during the pandemic and being prepared for potential mental health changes in their clients. The Sussex Addiction Research and Intervention Centre (SARIC), which is hosting this free virtual knowledge exchange event, hopes to bring people together to (a) discuss how COVID-19 has impacted addiction-related mental health issues and (b) stimulate action to help prevent and treat potential addictions.
