Addiction Science

Presented by Faculty at The University of Texas, Addiction Science Research and Education Center as a service to professionals, clinicians, and the public.


Addiction treatment professionals, medical personnel, social workers, psychologists, law enforcement personnel, teachers, students, and the general public are often not aware of the newest research in addiction science. University researchers working on the leading edge of this research have been trained to communicate the latest findings in understandable language. This website is one of the ways that scientists can help educate the above groups to better understand the science of addiction, and to overcome myths about drug abuse and addiction.
