Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences

Centre for Addiction Research

The Centre for Addiction Research (CFAR) is committed to enhancing the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders by providing sound evidence to inform policy and practice in the understanding, prevention and treatment of addictive consumptions.

The Centre brings together researchers from across the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at the University of Auckland who are exploring the effects of dangerous consumptions – such as tobacco, alcohol, other drugs and gambling – on individuals, their families, communities, and society.

Working closely with treatment providers, our broad, multi-disciplinary approach (from molecular research right through to societal research) brings a unique and practical perspective.
