WHAT IS THE IEA CEU?
El Instituto de Estudios de las Adicciones (IEA-CEU) applies an interdisciplinary approach to research on addictive behaviours with the aim of making progress in prevention (education) and treatment (rehabilitation-reintegration).
The IEA-CEU thus brings together the different aspects involved in addictions: anthropological, historical, sociological, legal, educational, biological, psychological, medical, etc. This holistic, transversal and humanistic approach to the problem of addictions pretends to enhance the achievement of more innovative and effective strategies as demanded by today’s society.
