Dr. Segal's early research became the benchmark in Alaska for assessing the extent and pattern of drug use in the State. He worked on research that seeks to develop an understanding of the contributing factors and consequences of alcoholism among Alaska Natives entering treatment for substance abuse. He was also involved with evaluating treatment programs and with developing recommendations for enhancing treatment effectiveness, and with studies concerning homelessness. Another major focus is working with Alaska Native communities to overcome intergenerational trauma.
