The Florida Atlantic University Addiction Research Collaborative (ARC) is an interdisciplinary group of over 40 faculty and staff at the university. The ARC’s goal is to stimulate research, educational, and policy initiatives to address:
the public health emergency of opioid addiction and overdose deaths
the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social challenges involved in all forms of substance abuse
Through its combined efforts, the ARC, working with its community partners, seeks to shift the trajectory of the epidemic in South Florida and nationally.
