Addiction is one of the most complex and costly neuropsychiatric disorders. More than 40 million Americans have a substance use disorder. This is far more than people affected by other medical conditions, such as heart conditions, diabetes, and cancer. In addition, addiction can be quite dangerous. As a result, it is important that we work to prevent and treat substance use disorders. Here are some key facts:
- Addiction can touch anyone, anywhere.
- Genetics, environmental issues, trauma, age of first exposure, and other medical conditions affect whether you become addicted. They also impact how well you respond to treatment.
- Addiction is a treatable disease.
- Science-based medicine is essential for developing novel treatments.
Our core mission is to take the best possible care of you, using the latest research across multiple disciplines. Our research focuses on human biology and population health. We strive to develop new treatments based on scientific evidence.
We want to transform the lives of you, your family, and your community.
