Projects in Behavioral Addictions

The Trimbos Institute furthers research and implementation in behavioral addictions through a variety of research studies, program evaluation, policy projects, and implementation work. Examples of this work are below.

Addictions and Lifestyles in Contemporary Europe - Reframing Addictions Project (ALICE RAP)

The objective of the ALICE RAP program was to reframe the general understanding of addiction and to help redesigning addiction policy based on objective scientific evidence. The Trimbos Institute’s studies addictions governance by describing the views and forces that determine the ways societies steer themselves and by taking stock of present governance practices relating to known and new, emerging addictions.
