Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies


The Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies was established by the Board of Regents in 1972 to address the problem of substance abuse in Alaska.

Housed within the Institute for Circumpolar Health Studies, CAAS conducts research that addresses substance abuse in Alaska. Research activities center around the stimulation and coordination of interdisciplinary and collaborative studies and the promotion of scientific interchanges of alcohol- and drug-related information.

The Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies is located near the University of Alaska Anchorage campus at 1901 Bragaw Street, Suite 270.
