Alexandre B. Laudet, Ph.D, is an internationally recognized expert in addiction recovery.
Her federally funded research in the past 15 years has focused on elucidating what helps people with drugs and/or alcohol problems quit drinking or getting high and how they stay in recovery.
A social psychologist, her main goals are to build the science of recovery and to help translate findings into services and policy that create opportunities for long-term recovery and improved quality of life for people with substance problems.
She leads the Center for the Study of Addictions and Recovery at the National Development and Research Institutes, Inc. (NDRI)
and provides training and consultancy to government and community-based agencies on promoting opportunities for sustained recovery.
She regularly publishes in peer-reviewed journals, presents at national and international conferences, and serves on the editorial board of several scientific publications.
