Addiction Psychiatry

Addiction psychiatry is a medical subspecialty within psychiatry that focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of people who are suffering from one or more disorders related to addiction. This is a psychiatric subspecialty relating to the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of people suffering from addiction disorders. With the recent explosion in scientific knowledge in the area of substance abuse, growing sophistication in our understanding of the factors that contribute to substance use disorders has led to therapeutic strategies tailored to specific subgroups of those who misuse substances. Novel pharmacological strategies have been developed and are being implemented to target individuals for whom affective, attentional or anxiety symptoms pose a particular vulnerability to the development of substance use disorder or dependence. This may include disorders involving:

  • Use of legal and illegal drugs
  • Gambling addiction
  • Sex addiction
  • Food, and other impulse control disorders
