About us

The SUAL (Academic Department of Addiction Medicine in Lyon) is a university addiction medicine department providing care for outpatients from Lyon and its conurbation.


We are specialized in all types of addiction, and in the diagnosis and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults, whether they also suffer from an addiction or not.

The SUAL is a second-line expert consultation unit for all types of addictive disorders (drug addictions, behavioural addictions, resistance to treatment for common types of addiction). Alternative options of treatment may be offered in the framework of research protocols, at the initiative of the SUAL or with the collaboration of national or international addiction departments.

Finally,  the SUAL has an "Équipe de Liaison et de Soins en Addictologie" (ELSA, Addiction Care and Liaison Team) that visits the various psychiatric departments of Le Vinatier Hospital to meet hospitalized patients with addictive disorders.
