Publication: Mutual-Help Group Participation for Substance Use Problems

Dr. Audrey Hang Hai is among the co-authors on a recent research article entitled "Mutual-help group participation for substance use problems in the US: Correlates and trends from 2002 to 2018" published in Addictive Behaviors.
