Presenters

Joseph Guydish

Joseph Guydish, PhD

Joseph Guydish, PhD, is Professor of Medicine and Health Policy at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California, San Francisco. His research concerns access, delivery, and organization of substance abuse treatment services. He has led studies evaluating efforts to improve access to publicly-funded drug abuse treatment, assessing federal policy to end drug addiction and alcoholism as an SSI disability category, and investigating Drug Court and intensive case management interventions for drug-involved offenders. In recent years, his work has focused on tobacco dependence in addictions treatment, because of the high rate of smoking in this population, the known health consequences, and the increasing evidence that quitting smoking in addictions treatment also improves drug abuse outcomes.
