Developing Field Tools for Real-Time Assessment of Exposure to Psychosocial Stress and Drug Use in an Outpatient Treatment Population

Background. This protocol arose in response to NIH s Genes and Environment Initiative (GEI). There is no genetic component to this protocol (update: no genetics initially but added by amendment in February 2013); rather, the goal is to develop field-deployable measures of environmental influences (stressors, drug exposure, etc.) that can ...

Phase N/A

Linking Services to Patient Needs for Improved Patient Outcomes (CASPAR)

The proposed research study is directed at performing health services research in an estimated 15 community-based abstinence-oriented outpatient addiction treatment programs by developing ways of incorporating research-derived measures into standard clinical practice in the treatment of substance abuse clients. The primary goals are to use training and technology transfer to ...

Phase N/A

Contingency Management for Smoking in Substance Abusers

Substance abusers have a high prevalence and rate of smoking with little success in quitting, so stronger approaches are needed to encourage attempts to quit smoking. The aim of this study is to determine whether contingent reinforcement for smoking abstinence (CM), compared to noncontingent reinforcement (NR), increases the effectiveness of ...

Phase N/A

Alcohol Addiction and Otorhinolaryngology Cancer

Alcohol, associated or not associated with tobacco, is known to increase the incidence of ORL cancer. So, in fact many patients perform their ORL surgery operation in spite of their alcohol addiction. Many studies showed that a post surgery weaning syndrome increases morbidity and mortality. So our study will focuses ...

A Community-Based Strategy for Preventing Underage Drinking

In this community-wide intervention, we will evaluate a comprehensive underage alcohol use reduction intervention that combines policy and enforcement elements focused on 1) reducing social and commercial access to alcohol, and 2) increasing the likelihood of legal sanctions associated with use and misuse, and 3) mobilize parental and peer influences ...

Effect of Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse on Immune Function in Critically Ill Patients With Respiratory Failure

This study plans to learn more about people who are sick in the hospital with a lung infection, or respiratory failure. Respiratory failure, or severe lung failure, is a life-threatening disease. When it happens, the lungs have trouble carrying out their normal function of getting oxygen into the blood, and ...

Phase N/A

The Role of Neural Systems for Emotion Regulation in Coping With Alcohol Craving

The study combines 1) a 12-week clinical trial of CBCST in currently drinking alcohol dependent patients (target N=25) who are seeking treatment to reduce their drinking with 2) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) experiments that probe neural activity related to the utilization of copings skills taught in CBCST. The fMRI ...

Combating Craving With Contingency Management: Neuroplasticity and Methamphetamine Abuse in South Africa

Methamphetamine addiction (MA) is a global health problem with high prevalence and great social and health costs in the United States and in the Republic of South Africa, and there is a strong need for development and implementation of effective MA treatment approaches. This study will correlate MA-abstinence outcomes from ...

Phase N/A

Brain Inflammation and Function in Alcoholism

The abuse of high doses of alcohol is associated with cognitive impairment that in extreme cases can result in dementia. However, the mechanisms underlying the neurotoxic effects of alcohol to the human brain are poorly understood. Here we test the hypothesis that alcohol-induced neuroinflammation contributes to its neurotoxic effects in ...

Bupropion-Enhanced Contingency Management (CM) for Cocaine Dependence

The efficacy of behavior therapies may be enhanced by certain medications, particularly those that act on dopaminergic systems. The purpose of this project is to examine effects of bupropion on initiation and maintenance of cocaine abstinence in a population of cocaine dependent methadone maintenance patients. Bupropion appears to be the ...
