Our Organization, Our Mission and the Work We Do

All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.
— Victor Hugo

The mission of the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc. is to reduce the use of illegal drugs. We work to achieve this mission by conducting research, promoting ideas that are affordable and scalable, linking with other individuals and groups to create synergies, and presenting new ideas at national meetings and in the media and by writing papers and reports that appear in leading journals and publications.

This activity is managed and produced by the small and productive IBH staff, working with a uniquely talented and dedicated group of advisers and allies.  While much of our work is original, IBH claims no ownership.  IBH emphasizes collaboration and coalition-building.  The result is our continued leadership in drug research and policy.
