Substance Abuse Studies
Addiction, the most severe form of substance abuse, is a biopsychosocial disease. This means that it has biological origins, with psychological ramifications, and ultimately with social consequences. Addictions cannot be cured, and thus must be viewed as chronic disorders, but they can be effectively treated.
Investigators at the Center for Psychotherapy Research have been involved in three recent studies which evaluate treatments for substance abuse, and more studies are being planned. To learn more about the three studies, please click on the following links:
- NIDA Collaborative Cocaine Study
- Group Drug Counseling for Cocaine Dependence
- Patient Feedback: A Quality Improvement Study in Outpatient Settings Study
- A Preliminary Study of the Effects of Patient Feedback in Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Programs
