    Dr. Thomas studies the relationship between response to stress and the risk of developing alcohol problems, and how stress may contribute to relapse in individuals with alcohol dependence. She is committed to helping reduce the stigma of addiction and to promoting treatment seeking through her active education and outreach efforts in the community.
