She described the Helping End Addiction Long-Term (HEAL) Initiative and NIDA-supported research addressing sex differences in pain and addiction. Launched a year ago, the HEAL Initiative builds on NIH research on pain and addiction and on integrating behavioral interventions with medication-assisted treatment to improve treatments for opioid use and addiction and to enhance pain management.
