Addiction Science: From Molecules to Managed Care

Drug abuse prevention, addiction treatment, and HIV/AIDS.

Treatment Research

To address the devastating consequences of drug abuse and addiction, NIDA’s large research portfolio is focused on three main areas: drug abuse prevention, addiction treatment, and HIV/AIDS. Treatment research examines 1) why people need help to achieve abstinence; 2) behavioral and pharmacological approaches to treat addiction; and 3) how best to provide a continuum of care approach to addiction treatment based on what we now understand about addiction as a chronic, but treatable disease.
