Dr. Denis Antoine came to Johns Hopkins for a residency in Psychiatry after graduating from Howard University School of Medicine. After residency, he underwent NIH-sponsored postdoctoral training in addiction research at the Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus. He is also double board-certified in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine. He has since become Director of both the Motivated Behaviors Unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Cornerstone at Helping Up Mission programs. These programs serve patients with substance use disorders and co-occurring psychiatric conditions and serve as sites for systematic research of issues pertaining to substance use disorders. Concurrently, he has published research on abuse liability methodology, the psychiatric assessment of dual diagnosis patients, and technology-assisted treatment for persons with substance use disorders. His other areas of research interest are, clinical effects of marijuana, health services outcomes and feeding behavior and taste changes in the setting of substance use.

Dr. Antoine will focus on the pharmacology of marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids weaving in salient details on the clinical effects of these compounds. With his expertise in substance use disorder treatment and research, he will touch upon relevant research regarding the use of these substances.
