About iCAAD

iCAAD: International Conferences on Addiction and Associated Disorders. We are an ongoing series of global events facilitating an open dialogue on addiction and other behavioural health issues. Our international platform is dedicated to expanding knowledge, exchanging ideas, and advancing the prevention and treatment of Behavioural, Mental, and Emotional health issues.

iCAAD Events focus on knowledge distribution and the acquisition of skills that can be applied in day-to-day practice – including developing business workshops designed to support practitioners with the ever-increasing demands of small businesses.

We coordinate presentations from renowned medics, therapists and counsellors in addition to spokespeople and exhibitors from the world’s top recovery facilities and organisations. Our iCAAD Events bring together a wide range of academics, researchers and practitioners to join our discussions on the most innovative developing research and trending topics in the specialties of Mental health, Behavioural health, Addiction and Recovery.

iCAAD, encourages a global dialogue on the expert treatment of increasingly common conditions affecting individuals in every country – it is now more important than ever that specialists are able to network and share their findings to help treat patients rapidly and more effectively

Behavioural, Mental and Emotional health issues are saturating news headlines today, the world is speaking out and loud - and iCAAD is carrying the momentum forward.

iCAAD Events have taken place in the London, Paris, Rome and Brussels and are committed to advancing the prevention and treatment of Behavioural, Mental and Emotional health worldwide.

  • ‘It’s an incredibly important event, it’s not just for the UK but it really has been extremely successful in reaching out to many other countries… It’s also the mingling of the different cultures and learning from one another. It’s really time for a cutting edge conference that does brings in the rest of the world because we can all learn from each other.”

  • ‘I think it’s vital to have the face to face contact that iCAAD allows’

  • ‘Being from the United States, it’s so incredible to see all of the different perspectives, oftentimes, we’ll see the same people in the same room over and over again. I think there’s something important about that community, but for us it’s been such a unique experience to be able to connect with others.’ 'It’s also beautiful to see the shared similarities actually that we have, differences in how we treat these problems, but there’s so much we have in common and so much care that we have. So it’s really great to connect with other people, who are in the trenches fighting the same battles that we’re fighting all over the world.’

  • ‘I think this is a fantastic platform to share technology and ideas, I had to travel 13 hours to come here and I think it was definitely worth the flight. I’m looking forward to going back because I’ve learnt a lot myself, people are open to sharing which is very important, and I’m going to take back a lot of information back home and share it with others. I’m glad that iCAAD has provided this platform, the past three days has been a fantastic academic experience, and it’s also been useful to network. We’ve met some good friends from the past, we’ve met new friends, new opportunities, so I’m looking forward to the next iCAAD actually.’
