This World Congress offers an ideal opportunity to get updated with the state of art of Dual Disorders in the early part of the 21st century and share the views and future directions of exciting developments in this new area.

In addition to the novelties in research and clinical practice, the congress will focus on neuroscience insights on Dual Disorders.

Main and key speakers from around the world will provide insights into their areas of expertise with innovative and attractive formats.
