"Firsts" in Alcohol Studies

There are some “firsts” in alcohol studies known to many only by a few sen­tences handed down from one to another, including "firsts" in the alcohol literature, such as a few early descriptions of the complications of chronic alcoholism, the first attempts at experimental solutions, and the first allusions to seemingly modern theories, published in the Quarterly Journal of Studies on Alcohol.

In the footsteps of the founding fathers of the science of alcohol studies, the Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies, as the successor of the first institurion of its kind, follows the original mission represented by the five pillars: research, publication, education, therapy and special services. 

The Quarterly Journal of Studies on Alcohol grew out of collecting alcohol literature. Now called the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, it is the longest running addiction journal in the US.
