Among the contemporary public health issues that merit professional training, drug use / abuse stands out, due to the implications it has on people, communities and health systems.

The Master in Drug Dependencies, addresses this issue from a public health, mental health and clinical toxicology approach, training professionals who help to understand the phenomenon of drug use / abuse and provide them with skills and abilities that allow intervention at the levels of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation and the development of harm reduction strategies, taking into account the great associated comorbidity, physical and mental.

We develop our program in three face-to-face and independent cycles, giving our students the possibility of strengthening their knowledge in drug addictions based on research and applied practice.
