Research on access, delivery, and organization of substance abuse treatment services, treatment effectiveness, and adoption of new treatments into practice settings. He is currently testing an organizational change intervention for treatment programs in tobacco dependence. Joseph Guydish, PhD, MPH, is Professor of Medicine and Health Policy at the University of California, San Francisco.   His research concerns access, delivery, and organization of substance abuse treatment services. He leads the NIDA P50 San Francisco Treatment Research Center, which is focused on continuing and extended models of addiction treatment.  He is co-investigator in the regional node of the NIDA Clinical Trials Network, one of 13 such nodes in a national network dedicated to improving substance abuse treatment through multi-site clinical trials research.  He has led studies evaluating San Francisco efforts to improve access to publicly-funded drug abuse treatment, assessing federal policy to end drug addiction and alcoholism as an SSI disability category, evaluating needle exchange as an HIV prevention strategy, and investigating Drug Court and intensive case management interventions for drug-involved offenders.  He is currently testing strategies designed to support drug abuse treatment programs in better addressing tobacco dependence.
