The Federative Institute of Behavioral Addictions is a unit of the Nantes University Hospital dedicated to research, training-prevention and information on behavioral addictions (eg pathological gambling and gambling, excessive practice of video games, Internet gaming disorder, affective and sexual addictions, pathological purchases , excessive physical exercise, etc.).
The CRJE was the first structure on French territory to develop a research, training and information activity on excessive gambling (games of chance and money & video games), in 2008. Born on the initiative of the Pr Jean-Luc VENISSE, addiction psychiatrist at the University Hospital of Nantes, it was created thanks to the financial support of the University Hospital of Nantes and donations from two patrons, the Française des Jeux (FDJ) and the Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU).
After three years of existence, the CRJE was extended to cover all behavioral addictions and was renamed the Federative Institute of Behavioral Addictions (IFAC) in 2011. Thus, in addition to pathological gambling and the use of video games, IFAC’s field of action has been extended to other forms of addiction without product: cyberaddiction, compulsive shopping, eating disorders, sexual addiction…
The creation of the IFAC was also an opportunity for Prof. VENISSE to hand over to his successor, Prof. Marie GRALL-BRONNEC, also an addiction psychiatrist at the University Hospital of Nantes. Pr Marie GRALL-BRONNEC has been responsible for the medical responsibility of IFAC since 2011.
