Substance Abuse Treatment and Research
Substance Abuse is a pattern of harmful use of any substance for mood-altering purposes. The Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers multiple substance abuse services at two convenient locations. We continue to advance understanding and treatment through ongoing research and clinical trials with The Johns Hopkins Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and Research.
