The UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (ISAP) coordinates substance abuse research and treatment within the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. As one of the largest substance abuse research groups in the United States, ISAP works to:
- Develop and evaluate new approaches for the treatment of substance abuse disorders
- Move empirically supported treatments into mainstream application
- Advance the empirical understanding of substance abuse and support efforts to ameliorate related problems
- Investigate the epidemiology, neurobiology, consequences, treatment, and prevention of substance abuse.
