The research unit
The research unit – the unit for the study of addictions, is a joint initiative of the Neve Malchishua Association and the University of Haifa. The steering committee of the unit was composed in collaboration with relevant government ministries.
The unit works to encourage academic research to promote the effectiveness and usefulness of interventions in addiction victims. Examination of broad theoretical questions for the purpose of advancing academic knowledge, clinical and pre-clinical studies in which Malchishua serves as the research field will be conducted with full adherence to the preservation of the rights of the residents and the rehabilitative goals of the place. The research unit will work to strengthen the connection between the academy and the therapeutic field through the integration of graduate students in what is happening in the village.
