Our Programs and Team

The University at Buffalo’s Behavioral Health Clinic offers state-of-the-art, research-based treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective in treating alcohol disorders. 

About Our Treatment

Our treatment is:

  • Available for those who qualify for the research-based program
  • Private and confidential
  • Outpatient only
  • For individuals (not groups)
  • Available at no cost

Treatment typically includes six to 12 sessions of 60-90 minutes each. Sessions typically include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In addition, we offer follow-up resources and support (including referrals) for participants who complete the program.

Our Team

Part of the UB School of Social Work, the Behavioral Health Clinic is operated by internationally renowned addictions researchers Paul Stasiewicz, PhD, and Clara Bradizza, PhD, who each have more than 20 years’ experience conducting NIH-funded addictions research.
