OUR MISSION

CRISA: The Centre for Research and Information on Substance Abuse was founded in October 1990 in Jos, Nigeria, as an independent, non-profit, community service organization devoted to drug abuse research and prevention, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. CRISA is registered at the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, as a non-governmental organization (limited by guarantee of the Attorney General of the Federation) and in the U.S. as a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status.

The specific objectives of the Centre are:

To carry out and support research on all aspects of licit and illicit drug use and other lifestyle and health issues;
To serve as a clearing-house for state-of-the-art information on alcohol, tobacco and other drug use;
To organize conferences, training workshops and seminars on substance abuse epidemiology, prevention and treatment;
To provide regular information to researchers, prevention and treatment professionals, the public and the media through the publication of pamphlets, a newsletter, books and an academic journal;
To engage in all other activities that may contribute to the promotion of healthy lifestyles, especially among African youth.
