Dr. Walton's research interests include developing and testing the efficacy of interventions for alcohol, drug use and violence in community health care settings, such as the emergency department (ED), primary care, and substance use treatment. Her research focuses on the interrelationship among multiple risk behaviors such as alcohol, illicit drugs, and violence, particularly among traditionally understudied populations such as adolescents, women, and African-Americans. Dr. Walton and colleagues recently completed studies examining the effectiveness of brief interventions for alcohol and violence among adolescents presenting to urban ED's, marijuana prevention interventions among youth in primary care settings, and health services interventions among adults with substance use disorders presenting to the ED.
