Research Focus

The research of the DEARC focuses on the 2 primary developmental periods during which EtOH exposure occurs: prenatally/postnatally through maternal use (including in breast milk) and during adolescence. The general premise is that early EtOH exposure begets later EtOH exposure that increases the probability of EtOH abuse/dependence later in life, thereby increasing the probability the next generatation would be exposed and setting up a transgenerational cycle of exposure/abuse.
