History of NRLC

Original Building

The NRLC was originally formed at the University of Texas Medical Center in Houston, TX. 

Dr. Dougherty brought together a group of researchers interested in understanding how impulse control disorders were involved in maladaptive behaviors.  After 10 years in Houston, the NRLC relocated their facilities to Winston-Salem, NC and joined the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at Wake Forest University Health Sciences. 

In 2007, the NRLC was recruited to the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX.
