In India, adolescents and young adults are the most vulnerable groups falling into the hands of addiction. It is a well-established fact that Substances like tobacco and alcohol are gateway drugs and most adult substance users start tobacco use & alcohol use in their childhood or adolescence. The national survey conducted by NDDTC shows a high prevalence of substance use but considering the dearth of expertise in the field of addiction, creating awareness and developing expertise in the field is the need of the hour. The formation of the Society for Addiction Psychology is a robust and initiating step in itself in the direction to sensitize the people and to reduce the overall burden of SUDs in our country. We welcome all professionals working in the field of addiction to join our hands under the aegis of the Society for Addiction Psychology to share their experience and expertise and guide the young generation to a better path.
