Dr. Amy Goldstein

Dr. Amy Goldstein has joined us. She recently started working at NIDA, in our Prevention Research Branch. Amy was trained as clinical child psychologist and did a lot of work in schools helping kids with problems such as anxiety, depression, and attention deficit disorder. She can answer your questions about substances as well as why teens sometimes feel sad or anxious. Amy grew up in New York, but has lived and worked in Cleveland, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Her primary job involves working with researchers across the country to develop and test programs to stop people from smoking or using drugs before they start. When not in the office, Amy can be found chasing her three kids, riding her bike, binge watching shows on Netflix, and catching up on sleep.
