The Advanced Recovery Institute seeks to elevate clinical care and patient outcomes by conducting research and sponsoring mental health and substance use disorder training and education programs. As an initiative of the Root Center for Advanced Recovery, the Advanced Recovery Institute leverages and freely shares the clinical insights gained from treating 5,500 patients per day, training hundreds of practitioners, and participating in dozens of research programs each year.


To help develop insights and share knowledge that will improve clinical care both at Root and across the country, the Advanced Recovery Institute sponsors grant-funded research programs and partners with leading researchers and universities in their studies.
