Research in Practice

We stand for an evidence-based approach to addiction treatment. Thanks to our research projects and publications, we are able to constantly evaluate, further develop and expand our services, always aiming to improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing as well as the general quality of life of people with addictive disorders.

Our independent, interdisciplinary and practice-oriented research focuses on reducing the harm of legal and illegal substances as well as any questions associated with internal medicine, infectiology (hepatitis, HIV) and psychiatry. In addition to our own projects, we take part in national and international joint research programmes.
