Addiction research has lost a brilliant clinical scientist, Dr. Kathy Carroll @Yale. A great loss to @CPDDorg @NIDAnews @NIH_NCCIH @NIH HEAL. We are indebted for her CBT research among many accomplishments. Our deepest sympathies to Dr. Carroll’s family, friends and colleagues.

A favorite memory of @KathyCYale—in 2019, the @CPDDorg BoD meeting fell on my birthday, so she led the board in singing happy birthday to me at the end of the meeting. A perfect example of how she cared for others, her compassion and generosity.

Drug Policy Statements

A key part of CPDD’s mission is to provide both policymakers and the media with accurate, science-based position statements on matters of drug policy. Insofar as the common goal of all drug policy is to reduce harm and relieve suffering, we believe that the science often speaks for itself, and when presented in a balanced and nuanced manner, can help point the way to effective and reasonable public policy and advocacy initiatives.
