Founded by the same researchers who developed the Addiction Severity Index, the Treatment Research Institute is an independent, nonprofit research and development organization dedicated to science-driven reform of treatment and policy in substance use.
Criminal Justice Research and Solutions
Nowhere is the epidemic of substance abuse more apparent than in our criminal justice systems where approximately two-thirds of the people incarcerated meet criteria for substance abuse or dependence. TRI believes that public policy responses to this problem need to reflect the unique nature of the issues and problems that confront each drug-involved offender.
