Addiction Center Research Collaborations

Extra-Departmental Relationships

The Addiction Center and its faculty sustain ties with numerous organizations and operating structures within and outside the University of Michigan (UM). Such relationships are essential to our ongoing mission; they allow the development of a scientific agenda that would not be possible without such collaborations, and they provide a set of clinical opportunities that enhance training activity and allow treatment evaluation studies to recruit patients as subjects. Foremost among these are: (a) UM Addiction Treatment Services (UMATS), the Addiction Center's clinical arm; and (b) the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System (VAHCS). A number of faculty hold appointments with both institutions. The VAHCS operates an outpatient Substance Use Disorders Clinic (SUDC) as well as a Substance Use Disorders Intensive Outpatient Program (SUD-IOP).  The VA Ann Arbor is actively involved in clinical program research as well as several VA/DOD funded randomized clinical trials.

In addition to these relationships, the Addiction Center has ongoing research and/or clinical collaborations/projects with a large number of departments and centers at University of Michigan. These relationships establish connections with entities both within the UM Medical School/Health System as well as outside of it, including long-standing collaborations with Michigan State University, the University of Arkansas Medical Center, the Oregon Health & Science University, and the University of Idaho.
