The ETSU Center for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment, established in 2016, formally changed its name in 2020 to the Addiction Science Center as part of a concerted effort to keep pace with the evolving nature of the opioid crisis, whereby heroin and fentanyl are now the leading cause of unintentional overdose death in the US, not prescribed pain medications. In addition, the new name provides an opportunity to expand research efforts to include the study of co-morbid health conditions and poly-substance misuse incorporating studies focused on the resurgence of methamphetamine use across the country.
