DESPR is looking for research solutions to these questions:

  • How does technology contribute to substance use and addiction?
  • How can we get more large systems of care to adopt evidence based interventions?
  • How can we promote population neuroscience?
  • How can we minimize the risk of addiction to opioid analgesics among people suffering from pain?
  • How can we better promote evidence based screening and treatment of HIV related to drug use?
