Abstract

The mission of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) is to inform Americans of the economic and social costs of substance abuse and its impact on their lives; assess what works in prevention, treatment, and law enforcement; encourage every individual and institution to take responsibility to combat substance abuse and addiction; provide those on the front lines with the tools they need to suceed; and remove the stigma of abuse and replace shame and despair with hope. The Center is located at Columbia University where all the professional disciplines (health policy, medicine, nursing, communications, economics, sociology, anthropology, law, law enforcement, business, religion, education) needed to study and combat all forms of substance abuse - illegal drugs, pills, alcohol and tobacco - are available.
