MUSC’s Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs 2014
Alcoholism and other medical conditions caused by harmful drinking have a devastating impact on health and well-being. In the United States, 40% of families have a loved one with an alcohol problem, but only about ten percent receive the treatment they need. An estimated 22.2 million Americans, aged 12 and older, are classified as having a substance abuse disorder costing $400 billion as a result of medical consequences, reduced/lost earnings, lost workforce productivity, accidents, violence, homelessness, hunger and premature death. Tragically, alcohol and substance abuse are leading causes of life-threatening accidents and deaths in adolescents and young adults.

The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs, better known as CDAP, a division within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina, is one of the nation’s premier academic centers for the study and treatment of alcohol and substance abuse. CDAP is multifaceted and includes alcohol and drug addiction research, treatment, and professional training. Since opening its doors in 1995, CDAP has been recognized for its work concerning the effects of drugs and alcohol on health and disease, and has been ranked by US News and World Report in the top 10 academic institutions nationwide for its training programs in addictions. CDAP’s outreach coordinator and faculty have been actively involved in educating the public on the biological and social effects of substance use and abuse by providing education through community outreach. Thousands of school children and adult community groups have been educated through this outreach program.

While CDAP has accomplished much, there still remains much more to do, and it requires considerable monetary assistance in order to continue to make progress in the battle against the diseases of alcoholism and substance abuse.

Thank you for supporting CDAP! Your contribution to these efforts will allow the medical advancements made within the walls of CDAP to be translated into real-world help. For more information, please visit www.alcoholanddrugabuse.org or www.CDAP.musc.edu
