Testing a Promising Treatment for Youth Substance Abuse in a Community Setting

The overriding purpose of the randomized trial is to examine the effectiveness of a promising and efficient outpatient treatment of adolescent substance abuse delivered in a community-based treatment setting. Although several evidence-based treatments of adolescent substance abuse are emerging, none have experienced widespread adoption in community settings. Thus, as noted ...


Behavioral and Functional MRI Task Development Implementation and Testing

Objective The purpose of this protocol is three-fold: 1) to develop tasks examining various cognitive, motivational, and decision-making behaviors outside the scanner; 2) to modify, refine, and verify the feasibility and applicability of tasks for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure intended concomitant brain activation; and 3) to examine ...

Phase N/A

Characterization Imaging Instruments in Alcoholics and Non-Alcoholics

Objective: The purpose of this protocol is to obtain a standard set of assessments, including brain behavioral, structural, functional, and connectivity (structural and functional) information, on all NIAAA research participants, referred to hereinafter as Characterization Imaging Instruments (CII); a) to determine how individual differences in brain structure and evoked responses ...

Phase N/A

Integrated Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Abuse in Young Adults

The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and efficacy of an integrated treatment for substance abuse and posttraumatic stress disorder for young adults. The integrated treatment includes two established psychosocial treatments for substance abuse (Contingency Management) and posttraumatic stress disorder (Prolonged Exposure therapy).

Phase N/A

Maintaining Independence and Sobriety Through Systems Integration Outreach and Networking

Background: Homeless Veterans often have multiple health care and psychosocial needs, including assistance with access to housing and health care, as well as support for ongoing treatment engagement. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) developed specialized Homeless Patient Alignment Care Teams (HPACT) with the goal of offering an integrated, "one-stop ...

Phase N/A

Community Supported Risk Reduction for Syringe Exchange Participants

Participants of syringe exchange programs routinely suffer from untreated or under-treated substance use disorder, a situation that is associated with significant individual and public health costs. These individuals are also routinely embedded within social networks that reinforce continued drug use and related HIV-risk behaviors. The welfare of these individuals and ...

Phase N/A

10 Days of Theta Burst Stimulation as a Tool to Treat Cocaine Dependence

Cocaine dependence is a particularly difficult substance use disorder to treat. There is currently a lot of scientific inertia focused on the development of novel, neural circuit based strategies for intervention. A prior NARC funded pilot project in non-treatment seeking cocaine users demonstrated that a single session of medial prefrontal ...


A Novel Compound for Alcoholism Treatment: A Translational Strategy

Objective Ghrelin is a 28-amino acid peptide that stimulates appetite and food intake. It is an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR1a). Preclinical studies suggest that ghrelin modulates alcohol reward processing. Previous work from our research team, indicated that intravenous (IV) ghrelin administration, compared to placebo, results ...


Neural Mechanisms of Disulfiram Effects

The overall goal of this project is to combine functional brain imaging and clinical methods in order to examine how treatment with disulfiram (DIS) alters neural activity related to alcohol-seeking motivation in patients with alcohol use disorder (AUD). DIS is an established, effective, FDA-approved medication for AUD that causes a ...


The Impact of Alternative Social Assistance Disbursement on Drug-related Harm

Coordinated monthly income assistance payments, while seeking to alleviate poverty, can also have negative and unintended impacts, particularly among people who use illicit drugs (PWUD). Observational research has identified escalations in drug-related harm coinciding with monthly assistance payments, such as overdose, treatment interruption, hospital admissions and public disorder. This project ...
