Our unit investigates research and education in alcohol and drugs.


We are currently conducting research into the use of the sustained release Naltrexone implant.

Other research includes:

  • Dual diagnosis (substance abuse and mental illness).
  • The role of self-control (or the lack of) in depression.

Previous research has assessed genetic polymorphisms possibly associated with heroin dependence.

We have also carried out a baseline survey among patients with mental health disorders of their attitudes towards the proposed ‘smokefree’ WA hospital policy which was implemented in January 2008.
