Jeremy Bray is a professor and head of the Department of Economics in the Bryan School of Business and Economics at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His research focuses on two primary areas of interest: the economics of substance abuse and the economic evaluation of behavioral health interventions. In his work on the economics of substance abuse, Bray has examined the labor market effects of substance use, abuse, and dependence and has studied the role of prices and taxes in consumers’ choices regarding alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. In his research on the cost-effectiveness of behavioral health interventions, Bray has estimated the costs and effectiveness of employee assistance program (EAP) services, screening and brief intervention (SBI) programs, behavioral and pharmacological therapies for alcohol dependence, and workplace prevention, early intervention, and wellness programs.
Bray was the project director of the national, cross-site evaluation of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment’s (CSAT) Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) grant program. He was Principal Investigator of the Data and Methodological Coordinating Center for the Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
