Welcome

The Center for Interventions, Treatment and Addictions Research (CITAR) is administratively housed within Boonshoft School of Medicine's Department of Population and Public Health Sciences. It represents the focal point for academic research on substance use and related services (treatment, harm reduction, etc.).

CITAR was founded by a member of the Wright State University School of Medicine faculty, the late Harvey A. Siegal, Ph.D., in 1980. Dr. Siegal continued as director until his death in December 2004. 

In addition, the center provides consultation and program evaluation services.
