Dr. Lisa A. Marsch is the Director of the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center at Dartmouth College and a faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry at Dartmouth College. With funding from NIDA, Dr. Marsch has led a line of research focused on the development and evaluation of state of the art, technology-based (computer-, mobile-, and Internet-delivered) interventions targeting substance abuse treatment among youth and adults, HIV prevention among substance-using youth and adults, and substance abuse prevention among children and adolescents. These technology-based therapeutic tools reflect an integration of science-based behavioral interventions with evidence-based informational technologies. This work has been conducted in a variety of settings, including physician offices, substance abuse treatment programs, criminal justice settings, educational settings and via the Internet. This research has provided novel empirical information regarding the role that technology may play in improving substance abuse prevention and treatment in a manner that is cost-effective, ensures fidelity and enables the rapid diffusion and widespread adoption of science-based interventions.
