Dr. Dennis Watson, Associate Professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department, and Dr. Bradley Ray, Assistant Professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, published the article, Developing Substance Use Programming for Person-Oriented Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT): protocol for a pilot randomized controlled trial, detailing a project he and colleagues are piloting at Public Advocates in Community Re-Entry (PACE).
