Charles P. O'Brien, MD, is the Appel Professor of Psychiatry,
vice chair of Psychiatry, and founding director of the Center for
Studies of Addiction at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1971, he
founded one of the first substance abuse treatment programs and
began improving therapies with controlled clinical trials. He
discovered a new medication (naltrexone) for alcoholism, a
treatment that won FDA approval and may become the first
psychiatric medication to be prescribed based on genotype. He also
developed new methods for using psychotherapy combined with
pharmacotherapy for treating all addictions. His work is described
in over 520 publications, including five books; he is among the
most highly cited in the psychiatric field. The Addiction Severity
Index developed by his group is used all over the world as a
standard measure and his brain imaging discoveries have increased
our understanding of addiction. Dr. O'Brien created a required
substance abuse course at Penn in 1989, now a model for other
medical schools. He is a member of the IOM, and recipient of the
Sarnat International Prize in Mental Health and the international
Jellinek Memorial Award for alcoholism research.
The William C. Menninger Memorial Award was established by the
Board of Regents on April 9, 1967, in honor of Dr. Menninger, who
was a Governor, Regent, and First Vice President of the College.
This award is bestowed for distinguished contributions to the
science of mental health.
