A multi-faceted approach to addressing addiction and substance-use disorders

Penn State Addiction Center for Translation was created to address substance-use disorders, particularly given the current rise in drug overdose deaths.

A team of Penn State researchers, clinicians and community partners have come together to conduct and disseminate cutting-edge research and share evidence-based methods in substance use prevention and treatment with the community.

The center educates and trains current and future clinicians, health care providers, researchers and community members on issues related to substance use and substance use disorder; helps patients find compassionate and effective care; obtains private and federal funding to support basic science, clinical and translational research; and serves as a resource for the community, as well as the state and federal government, to access evidence-based information and interact with experts in the field.
