Overview

This strategic plan reflects NIDA’s commitment to advancing all aspects of addiction science - from basic to translational, clinical, and health services research - in the service of enhancing fundamental knowledge and improving people’s lives. Today’s landscape of substance use poses both unique challenges and unprecedented opportunities to leverage the profound potential of science toward those goals. While we have made impressive progress, there is more to be done.

Over the next five years, NIDA will continue to support cutting-edge research informed by people with lived experience across all facets of our scientific portfolio, while remaining nimble enough to take advantage of new scientific opportunities and address emerging public health needs.
