McLean Hospital – 115 Mill Street, Belmont, MA 02478
As a medical sociologist at McLean Hospital since 1983, Dr. Griffin has focused primarily on clinical research in addiction, with the goal of disseminating findings to clinicians not involved in research. For example, her paper on gender differences in recovery from cocaine abuse has been widely cited. Other studies have focused on treating substance-dependent patients with a co-occurring psychiatric disorder and, most recently, long-term outcomes of prescription opioid-dependent patients. A theme of her investigations is addressing important methodological issues, such as assessing primary substance of abuse.
Results of her investigations have resulted in numerous peer-reviewed publications and presentations to the scientific and clinical community. Her role within the McLean Hospital Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse includes collaborating with junior and senior investigators on numerous research projects, particularly guiding data analysis and presentation of results, both in written and oral reports.
