First organized in 1962 by Dr. Saul B. Sells, the Institute of Behavioral Research (IBR) at Texas Christian University has as its prime directive "to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of programs for reducing drug abuse and related problems." From the site's main page, visitors can learn about the operations of the IBR, read profiles of its staff, and read some of the institute's many publications. For persons interested in the field, the newsletter section will be quite helpful, as it contains brief summaries on a number of topics, such as drug treatment processes, organizational change, and treatment assessment. Visitors can also peruse a list of current research projects, complete with lists of project investigators, project goals, and the abstracts of publications generated from their respective areas of research.
