The e-learning Master is designed to stimulate reflection and debate on crucial topics in consumption and abuse of legal and illegal substances and addictive behaviours from a multi-disciplinary and international and cross-national perspective.  It is meant to provide students with knowledge and skills useful to investigate and analyse the psychological, social and health implications arising from alcohol and drug consumption. It also provides the possible responses to problems and offers the tools they need to face clinical practice and prevention challenges.

For the 2023-2025 edition, the master’s degree is part of the educational offerings of the University of Aarhus (Denmark) in addition to the University of Turin (Italy). The master’s degree was designed and developed by Middlesex University (UK) and the University of Piemonte Orientale (Italy).
