Center for the Study of Drug Addiction Policy

Millions of Americans, even family doctors and other professionals in the field, are receiving incomplete or misleading information about addiction and drug abuse. As a result, policymakers are now often mandating a single approach to treating addiction thereby eliminating other pathways to recovery. Choice is important. Eliminating recovery options has unintended consequences that hurt American communities and families.

The Center’s mission is to critically examine these unintended consequences, desired recovery outcomes and the value of choice in treatment. CSDAP publishes original and curated content focusing on these issues.
