Utah Addiction Center
The Utah Addiction Center (UAC) is dedicated to prevention, early intervention, and treatment for substance use disorders (SUDs). Direct patient services are not offered, but we are dedicated to improving medical and behavioral healthcare-related education and patient care through interdisciplinary research and clinical training.
UAC is housed in Health Sciences as part of the School of Dentistry.
UAC supports medical and behavioral healthcare professionals working to prevent and treat substance use disorders. We:
- develop programs and policy at the local, state, and federal level;
- teach and train medical and behavioral healthcare professionals in Utah and throughout the United States;
- and conduct applied and clinical substance use disorder research.
