Approximately 45 million Americans struggle with addictions, ranging from substances suchAlcohol abuse as opiates and alcohol to behaviors such as gambling.  Although a great need for intervention exists, the treatment of addictions is plagued by a multitude of problems.  Few individuals afflicted with the disorder seek treatment (< 20%), when they do present for treatment many do not adhere or remain in treatment, and a significant proportion will relapse after treatment (~ 50%). Research conducted in the WAGER Lab strives to address the difficulties in helping people with addictions make lasting positive and meaningful changes in their lives.
