Executive Summary

NIDA International Forum Focuses on Commonalities Among the Diseases of Addiction

Drugs. Sex. Gambling. Obesity.

Plenary session speakers at the 14th NIDA International Forum documented the commonalities among these "Disorders of Desire," citing clear overlaps in implicated brain regions and similar patterns of compulsive self-administration, tolerance, craving, comorbidity, disruption of inhibitory control, and impaired decision-making.

The NIDA International Program held a series of webinars this spring to help participants of the 16th NIDA International Forum prepare their poster and oral presentations.

Mark your calendars for June 8–11, 2012. The NIDA International Forum, held each year in conjunction with the annual scientific meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD), will highlight the range and quality of drug abuse and addiction research conducted around the world.
