The Research Institute on Addictions (RIA) is a long-standing
national leader in the study of substance use and abuse, addiction
and treatment. For more than 40 years, we have conducted
groundbreaking research on significant addiction issues.
RIA's Addiction Treatment Services (ATS) is the only alcoholism
and substance abuse treatment program in New York State designed
specifically for clinical research and certified by the New York
State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.
The Research Institute was founded from a community need to
understand and find answers to issues related to alcoholism.
As that mission grew over the years to include other forms of
substance abuse and gambling, RIA expanded its committment to
keeping the community informed and aware of information and
advances in the addictions field.
