The Substance Use and Misuse Team is committed to interdisciplinary research and has expertise in a range of disciplines including: sociology, public health, health ethics, psychology, parenting and family support, nursing, violence reduction and cultural criminology, geography and social work. Our work currently focuses on a number of central themes:
Research on Substance Use and Misuse at Glasgow Caledonian University involves our Institutes for Applied Health and Society and Social Justice Research. In line with the social mission of Glasgow Caledonian University to serve the common good – ‘the good of all and of each individual’ – the team is dedicated to addressing issues of social justice and inequality related to substance use and misuse. We are also committed to engaging with other academics, health professionals, third sector partners and the public to inform our work and to educate others. We run a popular seminar series - the seminars are free and open to all and the programme can be accessed here Substance Use and Misuse - A3 Poster.
