IRIS is committed to principles and practices of community-engaged and community-based participatory research (CBPR).  We have partnered with diverse stakeholders to assess needs, develop questions, devise methods, and create dissemination plans that are practical, accessible, and valuable to agencies, academics, and populations we aim to benefit.   


We have collaborated closely with peer leaders to examine and uplift the role of peer-delivered services within the overall opioid recovery support system of care.
