"Improving the quality of care provided to patients with problems from the use of alcohol and other drugs should be a major health-care goal and research agenda as articulated in the 2006 US Institute of Medicine report, Improving the Quality of Health Care for Mental and Substance Use Conditions. Our goal is to make Addiction Science & Clinical Practice the primary home for evidence to address this international health-care challenge."
