Research Interests

Tiffany Duren grew up in rural Virginia, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Bridgewater College.  She moved to Maryland to pursue a career at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) within the Dept. of Psychiatry.  Ms. Duren received her Master’s Degree in Clinical Community Counseling in 2006 from JHU, while also continuing to work there. 

Ms. Duren has worked in substance abuse clinical research for over 12 years, with a variety of treatment studies for individuals with co-occurring disorders.  In 2011, she earned her research certification from the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) to become a Certified Clinical Research Professional (CCRP), and she continues to maintain this certification.  Since 2006, Ms. Duren has also been co-facilitating the men’s Domestic Violence groups at the YWCA.

At FRI, Ms. Duren is working with Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Kelly on a NIDA-funded, randomized trial of interim methadone and patient navigation initiated in jail.  Her interests lie in helping those with co-occurring disorders, such as substance use disorders (SUD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as other psychiatric disorders.  She is excited to continue working with individuals with SUD and helping them improve their lives.
