Why I am a member of ADAA

I am a member of ADAA because it allows me to connect with fellow professionals who are at the cutting edge of their clinical practice and research. ADAA challenges me to stay on top of my profession by urging me to grow with the field, while exposing me to the top folks in it.

What I value about the ADAA mission and how my work fits into the ADAA mission  

ADAA values the bridge between science and practice, with a focus on curing disorders and making people better. My work in implementation science is in full alignment with the ADAA mission.  

What is most exciting and interesting about my workplace   

Our lab is working closely with a community organization to create an evidence-based treatment for young men recently released from prison. While relying on CBT principles and implementation science, we are tailoring treatment that can be created and delivered by paraprofessionals to these young men who are at high risk.
