WHAT WE DO

Engaging with academic, community, public and private partners, we inform responses to today’s most critical community challenges. This includes reducing drug overdose; improving access to effective, safe, and cost-effective health care; and aligning law enforcement practices with public health goals. True to Northeastern’s mission, we use our portfolio as an opportunity for experiential learning to prepare the next generation of leaders in legal, health, and social policy professions.

ACTION ALERT!
SAHMSA NPRM "Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records"
