About the Society

The Society was founded in 1884. It is a learned society whose key objective is to support the communication of scientific knowledge about dependence on alcohol, nicotine and other drugs. It aims to encourage the systematic study of dependence and to promote policy analysis.

The Society has an international membership and is open to individual practitioners, researchers and policy makers working in its field.

The Society publishes two prestigious journals as well as research monographs. It organises symposia and workshops. This Web Site is under development and it is proposed in the near future to set up an Internet bulletin board for members to exchange ideas and request information.

These are exciting times for the Society and we are keen to widen the membership to enable as many people as possible to benefit from a thriving and active addiction community.


Enhancement of the administrative and handling processes

Executive Office in Leeds

Your membership is handled by the Executive Office in Leeds, where the President and the Executive Officer are based. Bursaries and Travelling Scholarships are each administered by a dedicated member of the Executive Council and their respective offices.


What this means to you

The Society will now hold all personal and professional information provided by you for the benefit and sole use of the Society. This information is kept on a secure database that cannot be accessed by any other party and will not be passed on to any other party except for the purpose of mailing your journal copies to you. Your personal copy of Addiction will be posted to you directly by the publisher. Mailing information is not held by the publisher and remains the property of the SSA.


A better deal...

For the current annual membership fee of £85 / $175 (by cheque if joining/renewing from USA), the SSA offers not one, but both Society journals.

Compare this with the cost of subscriptions to Addiction and Addiction Biology* - over £1,000 per year!

And as ever, membership also offers...

  • Reduced enrolment fee for the Society's Annual Symposium, with opportunities for personal interaction with other members and an invitation to present your own work
  • An opportunity for your personal involvement in the Society's ongoing work
  • Access to the Society library at the Wellcome Institute in London
  • Electronic access through the Society's website to people with shared professional and scholarly interests based in many different countries

You can apply to join the SSA by completing the application form and the direct debit form or by completing the online form here.
