Addiction is one of the greatest public health crises of our time. Here at ARC, we are committed to advancing the science of human behavior change to improve the effectiveness of addiction treatment and recovery efforts. We aim to discover why certain pathways to wellness and long-term recovery work for some but not others in the service of designing new treatments that can reach more people.

Our team aims to bring together university faculty, community stakeholders, developers, and students at various levels of training interested in better understanding the science of addiction and recovery. We believe our interdisciplinary approach gives us a unique vantage point from which to develop new solutions and move the field forward. We disseminate our work through research publications, conference presentations, social media, episodes of The Addiction Psychologist Podcast, and other training opportunities. We are also dedicated to social justice, health equity, and the recruitment, retention, and career development of trainees from historically underrepresented backgrounds (e.g., ethno-racial minorities, individuals in recovery). If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out!

We acknowledge, with respect, that the land we live and work on today is the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations and peoples. This was also a site of trade, gathering, and healing for numerous other Native tribes.
