Dr. Perreault’s research focuses mainly on the evaluation of services in mental health and substance abuse treatment. Within a clinical context, Dr. Perreault has conducted research projects that centre on the treatment, organization, and evaluation of services, paying particular attention to individuals who are afflicted with comorbid disorders in mental health and substance addiction. He also studies the integration of services designed for this clientele. With the help of his research team, Dr. Perreault has developed and validated tools and methods aiming to evaluate the perspective of users, relatives, and stakeholders. His work has been replicated in many countries, including France and Brazil. Dr. Perreault also evaluates different programs destined for injectable-drug users, in addition to those suffering from comorbid mental health and substance abuse disorders. Within this context, he is responsible for a program of cross-training in the southwest region of Montreal that aims to facilitate the functioning of networks for services in mental health and in substance abuse treatment. This program includes personnel exchanges in which more than 40 teams from the aforementioned domains participate. Additionally, he is leading studies on the role of peer-helpers. One of these studies is aimed at the evaluation of a peer-helper centre for individuals with opiate dependencies. Another study involves the training of peer-helpers to facilitate access to the treatment of anxiety disorders.
