Dr. Flanagan is a clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Addiction Sciences Division of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina. She also holds a dual appointment as a Staff Psychologist in the PTSD Clinic at the Charleston VA. Her program of research has two primary components.

The second is developing novel behavioral, pharmacological, and combined treatments for alcohol use disorder and PTSD. She conducts this work among both individuals and couples.
Dr. Flanagan completed her doctoral degree at University of Tennessee, clinical internship at the Puget Sound VA Medical Center in Seattle, and a NIDA-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship at the Yale University School of Medicine. She joined the faculty at MUSC in 2013 under an NICHD- and Office of Research on Women's Health-funded BIRCWH (pronounced "birch") K12 program. Dr. Flanagan is currently PI or MPI of two NIAAA-sponsored randomized controlled trials, PI of a VA CSR&D-sponsored multi-site MERIT trial, and was recently awarded an R25 from NIAAA to support a new, diversity-focused training program. She serves as a mentor to numerous bachelor's and master's level students and staff, clinical psychology interns, and NIH and VA-sponsored postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty. Link:
