The goals of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs Section of APHA are to:

  • Develop, foster and advocate for sound research, policy and practice in the fields of ATOD epidemiology, prevention and treatment.
  • Enhance communication concerning ATOD issues among the Section members and the Section leadership, APHA members and the wider community.

We are building a better APHA.  Check back often to see how we’re expanding and improving our Section’s Web pages.
