Rutgers Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies

The Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies (CAS) in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology is a multidisciplinary institute dedicated to substance use research, education, and training. Our collaborations intersect with key translational health domains, broadening impact in the field of addiction science. CAS researchers and educators provide expertise on alcohol and other substance use topics for the public through local, national, and international media outlets.

Research

Our NIH-supported research programs seek to understand how mind, body and brain processes impact alcohol and other substance use behaviors, how health disparities unfold over the lifespan for those with alcohol and other drug use disorders, and how best to treat those with traumatic stress and substance use disorders in the community.

Education

Our educational programs offer weekly professional development seminars, specialty opioid intervention training for law enforcement, workshops and conferences for psychologists and other medical professionals, and a 3-day summer school. All of our addiction education programs immerse participants in the latest models for prevention and intervention.
