Addiction Research Journal Club Articles
The Addiction Research Journal Club meets from 4:00p.m.-5:00p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month in Room 451 North in the Institute of Psychiatry. For the most part, a journal article authored by the upcoming Addiction Research Seminar speaker is reviewed and discussed in order to better prepare for the speaker's seminar presentation.

Participation in CDAP Research
"I felt at all times that the staff I encountered were very interested in helping me. I never felt like a 'number.' "-CEL
" I did not feel judged or less of a person because of my alcohol issues. It has been a very positive experience...I also now realize this is a forever problem that I have to address on a daily basis."-Bobby
"This was an excellent experience. I learned a lot about alcohol dependence, coping strategies and other health related issues as they involve alcohol consumption. Most importantly my personal and family life have improved dramatically. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" -James
