What We Do
IAS cultivates new addiction science collaborations that cross disciplines and produce innovative, high-impact, and adaptable scientific evidence that can be readily disseminated to practitioners, policy makers, and the general public.
Training and Education
We are proud to develop novel addiction science training and education programs for members of the USC community, the residents of Southern California, and the general public.
Dissemination and Community Service
The Institute for Addiction Science engages with, learns from, and serves the community by disseminating evidence-based knowledge to increase awareness, correct misperceptions, counteract stigma, and inform policy.
Vision and Mission
Our vision is to unify and strengthen the field of addiction science and improve the lives of those touched by addiction.
Our mission is to promote well-being through knowledge, intervention and policy by engaging in creative, transdisciplinary science and training.
