Most current therapies for alcohol and drug abuse are based on counseling and behavioral modification. These approaches help and are successful for some. To date, the FDA has approved only a handful of medications for alcohol abuse, and the effectiveness of these medications is limited. Dr. Bartlett has established and directs the Preclinical Development Group, which is focused on the translation of basic research discoveries into drugable targets and new treatments for neurological diseases such as addiction, pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Bartlett's research has led to findings that suggest possible links between the neurochemical pathways for alcohol and nicotine dependence, and between addiction and compulsive eating.
