Alcohol and research meeting : what is addiction?

12 Dec 2013 | By Inserm (Newsroom) | Event

4th Meeting-Debate with support groups for people in difficulty with alcohol

Are people “addicts” when they are dependent, or is the opposite true? Or are both words totally interchangeable? What is there in common between addiction-dependency on alcohol and dependency-addiction to gambling?

The day will be centred around 3 main panel sessions :
From alcoholism to addiction
From gene to behaviour, from neuron to addiction
Is DSM-5 a health hazard?
