Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse
Division 28: The Division of Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse promotes teaching, research, and dissemination of information regarding the effects of drugs on behavior.
The Division was formed in 1967 to provide a home within APA for psychologists interested in the behavioral effects of psychoactive or central nervous system medicine, drugs and chemicals. Our research often combines the methods of psychology and pharmacology to study the interaction of behavior, drugs, and other environmental factors in animals and humans. It is conducted in laboratory, clinical, and community settings.
The Division addresses issues related to animal research, neurobehavioral toxicology, psychopharmacology training programs, development of new treatments for drug addiction, and public policy related to medication regulation and substance abuse.
