About the Presenter
Lauren Hoffman, PhD is an addictions psychologist working as a research fellow at the Recovery Research Institute (RRI), within Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from San Diego State University and obtained her Doctor of Philosophy degree in psychology from the University of Florida. At the RRI, Dr. Hoffman is leading a program of research aimed at identifying the biopsychosocial correlates of addiction, their change during treatment and recovery, and their influence on recovery outcomes. Though all substance use disorders are of interest to her, Dr. Hoffman’s current research focuses on opioid use disorder. The overall goal of her line of work is to provide clinically relevant information that can be used to enhance treatment and promote sustained recovery.
