Pathways to addiction

Trajectories, comorbidities, and vulnerability in substance use

Visiting scholar Dr Stéphanie Baggio aims to provide evidence in the identification of vulnerable groups of youths and the understanding of comorbidity of substance use disorders. 15 Feb 2018

Preventing substance use among young people is major health concern in public health research because substance use has several long-lasting detrimental consequences covering a large range of life aspects. It is crucial to understand how and why adolescents start to use substances, how they progress through the drug course, and the correlates of substance use.

Dr Stéphanie Baggio (PhD in psychology and MCs in statistics) is a senior researcher at the Division of Prison Health, Geneva University Hospitals and University of Geneva, as well as a lecturer at the University of Lausanne

Her research interests focus on human vulnerability and include behavioral addictions, substance use and health disparities.

The Gambling Treatment and Research Clinic at the University of Sydney's Brain and Mind Centre welcomes Dr Baggio as a visiting scholar for the month of February.
