The government-imposed austerity reforms following the economic crisis of 2010 in Greece severely impacted social programs for addiction counseling and mental health services. In the years since this dramatic reduction in programs, the new government has launched several initiatives to rebuild social and humanitarian support programs. Our delegation will visit new centers and meet with our counterparts as we discuss the progress and advances in addressing addiction and mental health in Greece.
Connect with addiction and mental health professionals in Greece to discuss:
  • Epidemiology of mental health and substance use disorders in Greece;
  • Assessment, intervention, referral, and treatment and care options;
  • Post-austerity reform programs to address the scarcity of service providers and access to treatment;
  • Role of primary care and community-based services in the identification and treatment of addiction for patients and affected family members;
  • Ongoing quality of life and community rehabilitation programming; and
  • International refugee programs and treatment for post-conflict trauma disorders.
