Our researchers and staff make substantial contributions to mental health and substance use policy and research.
We support several major research programs aimed at promoting tobacco cessation. The programs complement each other in their focus on multi-sector initiatives designed to implement and scale the integration of evidence-based treatments for tobacco dependence into safety-net clinics and hospitals. These efforts encourage tobacco cessation and mitigate health disparities.
More than a dozen of our faculty affiliates and fellows have been producing impactful research on opioid use and addiction. Our research includes projects focused on opioid tapering, patient-level risk prediction models and informing national opioid prescription guidelines.
