Norwegian Centre for Addiction Research

SERAFs grant from the Research Council of Norway enables SERAF to perform clinical addiction research at an international level and contributes to a more sufficient, evidence-based treatment of addiction disorders.

To meet the request from the research council we have significantly increased our alcohol research. We conduct extensive dissemination of addiction research through publications, lectures, courses, supervision and teaching of master and PhD students.

SERAF has a broad national and international network in the field of clinical addiction research.
