The Addiction Research Foundation’s mission is to conduct and support research that improves treatment outcomes for persons with substance abuse disorders.
Formed in August 2013, the Foundation strives to accomplish its mission through:
- Retrospective analysis of treated populations
- Prospective and longitudinal study of treated populations
- Development and testing of new assessment tools
- Publication and dissemination of relevant results
The Foundation is privately funded. To avoid any real or perceived conflicts of interest, the Foundation does not accept donations or support from the addiction treatment industry, pharmaceutical industry, or related associations.
