The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and scientists around the world have conducted significant research about the effects of alcohol, the nature of and consequences of alcohol misuse, and potential treatments for those who need help.

Unfortunately, much of this information has never reached policy and decision makers in the criminal justice system. NPAMC seeks to bridge this “knowledge gap” by disseminating this information through meetings, presentations, newsletters, publications, and the web.
