Shawn Dorius receives grant to advance substance use recovery


An Iowa State team of researchers, led by associate professor of sociology Shawn Dorius, has received a $260,000 grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to provide scientific support to the Iowa Department of Public Health as it works to advance substance use recovery resources in Iowa. The ISU team will collect and analyze data to guide the development of Recovery Community Centers (RCC) in Iowa. These data and related work will provide the Iowa substance use recovery community with a toolkit for developing a recovery community center network in Iowa.
