Transforming the understanding, treatment, and prevention of addiction
A hallmark of addiction is the tendency to choose immediate gratification over longer term, healthier benefits. Our research focuses on understanding the decision-making of addicts as a means to discover targets for new therapies.
Why do some people overcome addiction while others relapse? To gain insights into recovery, we launched the International Quit & Recovery Registry, which taps the wisdom and experiences of those in recovery from addiction.
To move from addiction to recovery requires change. We are exploring scientific methods to stimulate meaningful change that can help ensure success in recovery—and to revolutionize the treatment of addiction.
