From the desk of
Dr. John Brick,
Journal of Addiction Medicine and Therapy (JAMTS)

Thank you for visiting the Journal of Addiction Medicine and Therapeutic Science (JAMTS) website. Addiction medicine, including new approaches in the diagnosis and treatment of alcohol and drug use disorders and an understanding of the acute and chronic effects of psychoactive drugs is an exponentially growing field. We invite high quality articles in prevention (which we define broadly) so that your work may be communicated rapidly to other scholars, clinicians and researchers through our open access platform.

Articles submitted to JAMTS are assigned to expert reviewers. In most instances, a decision (accept, reject, revise) is made within weeks. Authors can track the progress of their submission through our online tracking process.

In addition, we are revising our editorial board and currently seek scholars with prior experience with the peer-review process to join our board. If you would like to be considered for board membership, please send a letter of interest and complete curriculum vitae to JAMTS at
