International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) supports the rapid improvement in competencies and skills among current and future generations of addiction professionals to meet the increasing demand for prevention, treatment, and public health services. Toward this end, the ICUDDR facilitates networking among universities to promote high quality education and training in the field of addiction prevention, treatment, and public health interventions. It also pursues related applied addictions research, outreach, and advocacy.

ICUDDR's members are Universities from around the world. We currently have over 250 member institutions who avail themselves of the benefits of membership including expert webinars, consultation, and training, networking with esteemed academic centers, research opportunities, and more!

ICUDDR Coordinating centers provide regional representation and a local face for ICUDDR. They are responsible for facilitating regional activities such as conferences, learning collaboratives, and webinars. In addition, regional coordinating centers can facilitate access to the Universal Treatment and Universal Prevention Curricula for Drug Demand Reduction and provide linkages for regional members who are seeking research partners or consultation for development of drug demand reduction education programming. Coordinating centers are active in North America, Europe, the Asian-Pacific region, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, and the Caribbean.

ICUDDR also hosts an annual conference which brings together experts in addiction science to learn from one another, network, and create partnerships. More information about the 2021 conference can be found at This year's event will be held online July 20-21st. The conference is open to members and non-members alike.
