Addiction to alcohol and drugs is a private struggle. Although alcohol use disorder is the largest and most costly public health problem, there are few patient advocacy groups supporting the research effort into its causes, treatments, and cure.

The success of the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies over the past three decades would not have been possible without the support of many generous donors and benefactors. We are grateful to the Bowles family for our building, and to many others for our research, treatment, education, and prevention programs. Better methods for treating alcohol use disorder and withdrawal are within sight, but greater resources are needed to turn the dream of a reliable cure into reality.
