Wellness in Recovery (WinR)

The WinR Addiction Advocacy Research Program

The Rutgers Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies (CAS) launched the Wellness in Recovery (WinR) Addiction Advocacy Research Program July 2021. The WinR Project Director is Dr. Margaret Swarbrick; Co-Director Dr. Denise Hien; and WinR Program Faculty Dr. Alexandria Bauer. On June 10 2022 at the Rutgers Inn we hosted a conference to highlight the CAS WinR co produced projects.

The aim is to promote healing and ensure vibrant healthy communities, bringing important new perspectives into our Center.
