CASAColumbia researchers work to assess the impact of substance use on American systems and populations, examine the links between substance use and other health and social problems, and translate knowledge about substance use and addiction into policy and practice.
For the past 19 years, CASAColumbia has produced over 75 reports and white papers on systems including health care, justice, social service and government finance; on populations including women, teens and people living in rural areas; and on the relationship between substance use and such topics as developmental disabilities, sexual behavior and religion and spiritual practice.
Through reports and white papers about the consequences of risky and dependent substance use and the disease of addiction itself, and best practices for prevention and treatment, CASAColumbia offers a balanced look at all sides of an issue. CASAColumbia forms collaborative partnerships and develops initiatives to translate this knowledge into health policy and practice in order to inform policy debate and offer practical solutions based on evidence based approaches to prevention and treatment.
