Journal of Addiction Medicine's (JAM) 2021 impact factor increased to 4.647, nearly a full point over 2020's score of 3.702, according to Clarivate's 2021 Journal Performance Data released in June 2022. This increase moves JAM's ranking from #10 to #7 within the 21 journals in Clarivate's “Substance Abuse" category.

JAM's Impact Factor consistently increased under the 7-years of leadership by Editor in Chief Richard Saitz, MD, MPH, FACP, DFASAM. Saitz moved into the position in 2015 until his resignation in December 2021. JAM's Co-Editors, Martha Wunsch, MD, DFASAM, Frank Vocci, PhD, Ismene Petrakis, MD, and Kelly Dunn, MD, and 3 Fellow Editors, Ben Han, MD, Patience Moyo, PhD, and Marcela Smid, MD, have also played important roles in the growth and success of JAM, and we congratulate them for this notable accomplishment.​
