PHI programs bring 50+ years of expertise in researching the economic and health impacts of alcohol in order to inform prevention and policy strategies. With more than 1,000 peer-reviewed studies, PHI’s highly regarded epidemiological research on alcohol use identifies gaps in knowledge and builds the evidence base for what works, both domestically and internationally. PHI examines the role of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status in drinking and evaluates treatment readiness and access. PHI also focuses on substance use-related concerns such as physical injury, violence and mental health problems and on improving interventions in primary care and treatment settings. Programs test new approaches, build capacity, provide technical assistance and mentor the next generation of investigators.
