The College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) is an interprofessional research society whose members address problems of drug misuse and addiction across a broad range of disciplines including chemistry, basic biology, pharmacology, behavioral science, clinical research, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and history.

CPDD serves as an interface among governmental, industrial and academic communities maintaining liaisons with regulatory and research agencies as well as educational, treatment, and prevention facilities in the drug abuse field. It also functions as a collaborating center of the World Health Organization. Your contributions help CPDD in the following ways:

CPDD provides information on science-based drug policy so that policymakers can shape their efforts to fund evidence-based treatment strategies based on the latest scientific research.



There is a rising incidence of newborns who experience Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome as a result of being exposed prenatally to opioid drugs while in the womb.

Drug overdose deaths are an urgent public health crisis in the United States. Research is critical to finding new effective solutions to prevent the misuse of drugs and prevent death, as well as related infectious diseases (for example, HIV and Hepatitis C). Your donation will help facilitate scientific collaboration, discoveries and dissemination. Working together, we can find solutions and help individuals achieve long-term recovery from substance use disorders.






Research is the key. The College on Problems of Drug Dependence, Inc. (CPDD) is a professional organization of addiction scientists who are dedicated to advancing knowledge of drug misuse and addiction to improve health outcomes.
