Advancing Psychiatric Practice
Through the Science of Addiction
A Research Track From the National Institute on Drug Abuse
NIDA’s mission is to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug
abuse and addiction. This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic
support and conduct of research across a broad range of disciplines from genetics and
neurobiology to clinical and behavioral science to health services research. The second
is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination and use of the results of that research
to improve prevention and treatment and to inform policy.
A wide variety of materials are available at the NIDA exhibit, at Booth 633, in the
American Psychiatric Association Exhibit Hall. Please allow time to visit the NIDA
exhibit to learn more about drug abuse.
Information about NIDA research, programs, and events is accessible through NIDA’s website at www.drugabuse.gov.
