During the first phase of the project (November 2019 – October 2021), the first open and multilingual e-learning platform for addiction professionals was developed including four e-learning modules on: behavioral addictions, addictions in young people, the gender perspective in addictions, and the European drug prevention quality standards. This platform is available in seven languages (English, Spanish, Slovenian, Romanian, Portuguese, Czech and French) at www.learnaddiction.eu.

In the second phase of the ‘Learn Addiction’ project (February 2022 –  July 2024), the project partners have developed a new e-learning module on ChemSex. This new e-learning module will be soon published at www.learnaddiction.eu.

Now, in the third phase of the ‘Learn Addiction’ project (October 2023 –  March 2026), the project partners will develop a new e-learning module on Harm Reduction.

During the meeting in Madrid, the delegates from the seven partner organisations participating in the third phase of the ‘Learn Addiction’ project have established the guidelines for the development of this new e-learning module on Harm Reduction. Once the first development is completed, a beta version will be published at www.learnaddiction.eu . All current users of the Learn Addiction platform will have access to this new module, they will be able to test it and provide feedback. Based on this feedback, the project partners will improve it before the publication of the final version in February 2026.

This third phase of the project ‘Learn Addiction’ is an initiative of UNAD – The Spanish Network of Addiction Organisations – in collaboration with: UTRIP (Slovenia), DIANOVA (Portugal), SANANIM (Czech Republic), RHRN (Romania), FedaBXL (Belgium), and NOTDIENST (Germany). The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
