The future belongs to new ideas and the new policies they inspire.


Founded in 1978, the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that develops new ideas to reduce illegal drug use.  Non-partisan and non-political, IBH serves as a catalyst for change.  IBH facilitates creative public and private sector collaboration to achieve this important public health goal.

In January 2018 Dr. DuPont authored A New Narrative to Understand the Opioid Epidemic.

In December 2017 IBH launched a fully redesigned website focused on the public safety threat of drugged driving, corresponding with National Impaired Driving Prevention Month.
