Dr. Nancy Haug, Ph.D.

Dr. Haug is involved in an ongoing collaboration with the Stanford PANLab, where results from neuroimaging and biobehavioral data are being translated into meaningful clinical feedback. She is also examining treatment outcomes from an archival dataset to determine predictors of therapy attendance and retention among Gronowski clients. 

Dr. Haug’s own research focuses on harm reduction strategies for drug use and addiction, and psychosocial treatments for substance use disorders (SUD). She is currently investigating medical marijuana dispensary staff practices, the impact of medical marijuana on psychotherapy treatment outcomes, and provider attitudes toward naloxone for opioid overdose. Dr. Haug has a long-term interest in addressing the specialized treatment needs of pregnant and postpartum women with SUDs. She will be launching a program evaluation and study of mindfulness-based group therapy in a perinatal substance use treatment program.
