Our team brings deep expertise in areas related to substance abuse prevention and other public health issues. This includes the prevention of teen pregnancy and risky sexual behavior, mental and behavioral health challenges, and opioid misuse.

Data indicate a significant number of individuals use and misuse narcotics like opioids. This presents a serious risk to our public’s overall health. There is a need for evidence to continually inform public decision-making in this area, including identification of effective programs and strategies, as well as research-based technical assistance and resources for understanding and adapting implementation to local contexts.
