You can apply to join the SSA by completing the online application form using the buttons below. Once we have received all required details and your payment, your application will be considered by the Trustees and we will write to formally confirm your membership.
The SSA has an international membership and is open to individual practitioners, researchers and policymakers with appropriate academic or professional qualifications or experience* in the addiction field.
(*12 months’ experience minimum expected.)
For a reduced fee of £25, the SSA offers concessionary membership to those who have retired, are unwaged or have ended their academic studies in the past five years.
Please note, journal access for concessionary members is online only.

The SSA also offers student associate status for a reduced fee. This is available to students who are taking or are about to undertake a UK-based course in which the focus of study is in the addiction field. Overseas students enrolled on an addiction course at a university which subscribes to one or both of the Society’s journals are also eligible. This status offers all the benefits of membership without the right to become a Trustee or attend or vote at the AGM, and with online-journal access only.
As an organisation, we continue to function during the developing pandemic.
We are following all government and Charity Commission guidance in respect of staff and reporting issues.
Our funding schemes remain open and we are continuing to programme our conferences planned for November 2020.
