The Science Of Recovery With Alexandre Laudet, Ph.d.

Recovery from addiction can be a fluid process, with successful times and relapses. During her talk at the 13thannual NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction, Alexandre Laudet, Ph.D., stated that the science of addiction needs to be complemented with the science of recovery. This will help to increase our understanding of the components, patterns paths and predictors of long-term recovery.

Dr. Laudet is a nationally recognized expert in addiction recovery. Her federally funded research over the past 15 years has focused on elucidating what helps people with drug and/or alcohol problems quit drinking or getting high and how they stay in recovery. She leads the Center for the Study of Addictions and Recovery at the National Development and Research Institutes, Inc.
