Developing improved methods of measuring substance abuse and mental health and their consequences in high-risk populations

Substance abuse and mental health are often inextricably entwined. In support of government agencies, foundations, associations, and other clients, we examine the intersection of mental health disorders and substance use dependence through survey research, substance abuse surveillance, data systems development, and economic and epidemiological studies. 

Our team focuses on emerging drugs of abuse, prescription drug abuse, and underage drinking, as well as the relationship between mental health, substance abuse, and criminal justice outcomes. We also develop and lead implementation of behavioral health interventions and conduct evaluations of prevention and treatment programs.
