About Us

The mission of the UW Center for Novel Therapeutics in Addiction Psychiatry is to create powerful new ways of treating people struggling with alcohol, opioid, tobacco and other addictions by combining psychedelic compounds with evidence-based behavioral interventions.

Main Challenge

Addiction continues to ravage our community and there is an urgent need for innovative and effective treatment options for those impacted by substance use disorders. Promising studies suggest the efficacy of psychedelics when paired with therapy, but more data is needed. Our Center seeks to accelerate the process so more people can get the help they need. Learn more.
