Chan Hellman, PhD, cultivates hope. His work with the University of Oklahoma’s Hope Research Center has deeply impacted Substance Use Disorder (SUD) research by examining the effects of hope as a tool in intervention and prevention modalities. Chan has worked closely with the JBS International team to bring awareness to the science of hope and the possibilities it provides for direct service providers to better leverage the science in their work with children who have been impacted by the addiction crisis, and their families .
