We are pleased to cordially invite you to the International Congress of Dual Pathology: Addictive Behaviours and other mental disorders, to be held in Madrid, Spain, 29-31 May 2008.

The high rate of co-occurrence of substance use disorders and other psychiatric disorders (dual pathology) is well established. As you may be aware, the rapid progress of technical advances in the neurosciences has led to a better understanding of the molecular biology involved in this area and new medication and treatment approaches are appearing with good prospects in Dual Pathology. In addition psychological, cultural and societal influences in this field provide a general background, so it is necessary for experts to meet and discuss on these developments.

This meeting will provide the opportunity for clinicians and researchers, as well as, distinguished guests to exchange views and ideas, discuss recent knowledge and possible actions in order to improve the health and well being of the dual pathology patients all over the world.

Topics for the congress have been carefully chosen by the scientific committee, including of course the most controversial issues of the speciality. International renowned speakers will be invited to present these topics, in order to create an effective forum for discussing and debating, allowing participants to interactively participate in the discussions.

It is a pleasure to inform that Call for Symposium proposals is already open, we invite you to participate. We hope your contributions will obtain the maximum success at this Congress.

An interesting, high quality and exciting scientific programme together with dynamic and varied social activities, is being prepared.
