Section on Tobacco, Alcohol & Drug Use

In NYU Langone’s Section on Tobacco, Alcohol, and Drug Use, part of the Department of Population Health’s Division of Comparative Effectiveness and Decision Science, we develop and evaluate innovative strategies to prevent and treat substance use disorders and addiction. Using evidence-based research, we work to integrate screening and treatment of addiction into primary care and criminal justice settings, as well as develop strategies to prevent and treat substance use problems at the community and population level.

Our faculty direct several research initiatives, including HealthyHearts NYC, New York City Treats Tobacco, and the NYU Abu Dhabi Public Health Research Center.

In addition, we offer educational opportunities including a fellowship in addiction medicine for medical graduates, a training program in substance use disorder research for NYU and NYU Grossman School of Medicine students in health disciplines, and an internship in health services research and smoking cessation for college students and recent college graduates. We also collaborate with the Tobacco Research Lab at NYU College of Global Public Health, which provides opportunities for master’s students to participate in research on tobacco and nicotine products.
