With great pleasure and following an initiative of Dr Dritsas Ioannis and the Department of Education and Social Work, the University of Patras extends the framework of cooperation with the team of Professor Dr Kiluk B. from Yale University.

The collaboration concerns the implementation of the CBT4CBT Program for the first time in our country, which is an organized framework for on line treatment of opioid and alcohol addictions as part of a broader therapeutic framework of face-to-face support. This program has been research validated for its effectiveness by the American Anti-Dependence Agency SAMHSA and is being implemented in all states in the US and in many other countries. Mr. Dritsas implements this program modified to the cultural and clinical profile of Greek patients in collaboration with National Anti-addiction agencies and is available at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
