Addiction Center Research

The University of Michigan Addiction Center (UMAC) conducts clinical and basic research that examines the biological underpinnings of substance use and substance use disorders. UMAC also studies the social and contextual factors that contribute to development, prevention, early intervention, treatment and the recovery of substance abuse.

Ongoing research, involving more than 25 different National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded studies, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the Department of Defense studies, and Department of Veterans Affairs studies, focuses in six areas at UMARC:

  • Prevention and early intervention studies
  • Developmental psychopathology and genetics
  • Neuroimaging and neurophysiology
  • Intervention including treatment and recovery
  • Health services research
  • Relationship of sleep problems and/or chronic pain to the treatment of substance use disorders

Our faculty is invested in the long-term policy issues related to substance use disorders and related medical conditions. We come to work every day hoping to help better the lives of our patients and their families.
