Meet Us

Welcome to the Division on Addiction. Our mission is to alleviate addiction-related social, medical, and economic burdens through research, education, training, and outreach. We offer encouragement, education, and training to a diverse group, including health care providers, policy makers, and scientists. The Division was founded at the Harvard Medical School 25 years ago. We are part of the Department of Psychiatry at the Cambridge Health Alliance, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital. Our faculty and staff come from diverse professional backgrounds helping us to expand our understanding, prevention, and treatment of addiction. We are funded through a variety of private and public agencies, businesses, and foundations. Those interested in joining our team, should review our latest fellowship and job opportunities. For all other inquiries about the Division, please  contact us.
