Addictive Behaviors Research Center


The primary mission of the Addictive Behaviors Research Center is to provide research, training, and evaluation in the development and dissemination of interventions to prevent and treat addictive behaviors. In pursuing this mission, we are guided by the following principles:

Our approach reflects a commitment to evidence-based practices designed to reduce harm and promote health.

We recognize the commonalities among addictive behaviors as well as the diversity of individuals who engage in these behaviors.

We encourage creativity and initiative by providing an environment in which students, faculty, and staff work cooperatively to develop research and clinical expertise.

We are dedicated to increasing our awareness and sensitivity toward sociocultural issues and to bridging boundaries that traditionally separate the university from the surrounding community.
