Addiction Sciences Division (ASD)
The ASD, within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, represents a collaborative effort among the University of Cincinnati, UC Health, and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Cincinnati. Our mission is to discover and refine medical and scientific knowledge and translate it via education, training, and dissemination into high quality, evidence-based treatments for people suffering from addiction-related conditions.
ASD research is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with some clinical trial support from the pharmaceutical industry.
Theresa Winhusen, PhD is the director of the Addiction Sciences Division.
