Addiction is a common mental health concern that causes many individuals in society to struggle. The goal of our research is to gain a better understanding of how addiction develops, examine the specific mechanisms underlying commonly co-occurring addictions, and develop evidence-based treatments for those who struggle with addiction. We primarily use quantitative methods to answer various research questions on this topic.
Our hope is that through our research, we will be able to shed light on this mental health issue and help individuals in the community who struggle with various addictions (e.g., substance use, gambling, video-gaming, and tobacco use).
