Students and Early Career Psychologists in Addiction

The Society of Addiction Psychology (SoAP) welcomes its Student and Early Career Psychologist (ECPs) members! We present the following resources as information you may find useful. Be sure to check back at this page, at we will be making regular updates with more content specific to the needs of our students and ECPs. 

PhD and PsyD Faculty Addiction Researchers

This list of faculty conducting research in addiction psychology and related fields is designed to aid individuals applying to graduate school. Prospective students are encouraged to visit faculty websites (included in the list) to determine whether faculty are accepting students and whether they are a good fit for their interests and experiences. We have also included a separate list of Master’s programs designed to prepare students for doctoral programs. Faculty who wish to be added to the list or make changes to their listing can contact Corey Monley at

Pre-Doctoral Internships with Addiction Training

SoAP developed a list of APA-Accredited pre-doctoral internships and a list of non-APA Accredited pre-doctoral internships that include addiction training. The tables include information about what kinds of addictions training, supervision, and research are offered at each site. We hope this is helpful to students applying to internships in the near future.

Credentialing Scholarships
