The Center for Research on Behavioral Health and Human Services Delivery (CRBHHSD) is one of several research groups within the University of Georgia’s Institute for Behavioral Research. The Center’s goal is to foster collaboration among UGA faculty in the social and behavioral sciences who are interested in studying the quality, organization, financing, and delivery of behavioral healthcare services; to provide support for their research; and to promote the development and implementation of innovative research in these areas.
Fellows within the CRBH study such diverse topics as the adoption of pharmacotherapies in addiction treatment; the role of clinical supervision in counselor retention and job satisfaction; the role of the workplace in identifying substance-related performance problems and linking employees with needed services; the use of brief screening and intervention protocols in primary care settings; the impact of state policy on organizational adoption of evidence-based treatment practices; and the interplay between work and well-being.
While all of the Center’s research examines some aspect of behavioral health, the unique and defining feature of our studies is their focus on the organizational contexts in which services are delivered.
The Center’s current portfolio of research is supported by various grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. We are grateful to these sponsors for their continuing support of our work.
This website is our principal means of disseminating the results of our research. The Presentations and Publications pages are regularly updated with new materials as they become available.
