Research Overview

Our education and advocacy efforts at the Center for Young Adult Addiction and Recovery are driven by our flagship research endeavors. Our research philosophy is that we seek to study and define the recovery success of our collegiate recovery students and others living in long term recovery, and to disseminate that knowledge back into the continuum of addiction treatment and recovery support systems, including collegiate recovery programs nationwide. The CYAAR is positioned in close proximity to dramatically transformative recovery success which is embodied by our students living in long-term recovery, and we are housed within a highly supportive academic institution. The two factors combined means we are poised to provide definitive scientific endeavors to explore recovery phenomena, and associated recovery factors, that hold the key to creating and perpetuating sustainable, life-long, abstinence-based recovery for the individual who seeks recovery.
