The RARC is partnering with the Institute for Prevention and Recovery (IFPR) to establish a streamlined process for enhanced collaboration among Rutgers researchers who want to partner with RWJBarnabas to analyze substance use disorder outcome data and/or implement new studies in the health system. IFPR is a leading provider of prevention programs for adults and youth, one of the largest providers of hospital and community-based recovery support services, and the largest provider of free tobacco and nicotine treatment services in New Jersey. IFPR is looking to partner with Rutgers researchers to advance the services offered and drive innovative solutions to addiction.

Researchers are encouraged to review IFPR’s existing programs and complete the on-line form to suggest new project ideas. Researchers have the opportunity to access existing data from IFPR’s programs including the Peer Recovery Program and Emergency Department Alternatives to Opioids Program, as well as the opportunity to collect new data within IFPR client populations.

Monthly meetings are starting for all researchers who are interested in partnering with IFPR on substance use disorder projects to discuss project ideas and opportunities. If you are interested in being added to the monthly meeting, please email
