Lamotrigine for Ketamine Dependence Trial

Introduction Ketamine is an anesthetic derivative of phencyclidine (PCP; 'Angel dust') with dissociative, analgesic and psychedelic properties. Recreational use of ketamine was first documented on the west coast of the United States in the early 1970s. Ketamine is frequently described as a "unique drug" because it shows hypnotic (sleep producing), ...

New Treatment for Alcohol and Nicotine Dependence

We propose a novel pharmacological strategy for treating alcohol and nicotine dependence concomitantly. The reinforcing effects of both alcohol and nicotine are mediated through the cortico-mesolimbic dopamine (CMDA) system, and the concomitant use of both drugs enhances their pharmacological effects. We propose a better approach to control dopamine (DA) effects ...

The Effectiveness of Deep Brain Stimulation for Opioid Relapse Prevention

The nucleus accumbens (NAcc) has a significant role in the process of opiate addiction and the initiation of relapse after detoxification. There is evidence that deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the NAcc exerts a positive effect on individuals with severe heroin addiction via inhibitory action . The investigators hypothesise that ...

Smoking Cessation & Opioid Dependence Treatment Integration

Tobacco smoking rates are substantially higher among individuals with substance use disorders (SUDs), relative to individuals in the general population (e.g., 97% vs. 19%, respectively). Yet most treatment programs for SUDs fail to address the use of tobacco among patients, and integration of smoking cessation treatment with SUD treatment may ...

Varenicline for Long-term Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) Users

100-200 long-term users of NRT will be enrolled in a placebo, controlled, randomized trial with varenicline or placebo for 12 weeks to stop the use of NRT. Assessments consist of carbon monoxide in expired air, p-cotinine, body-weight, questions about craving, nausea and dreams. Primary result is percent not using NRT ...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) Exploration of Neurocognitive Processes Involved in Food Addiction (FA) in Obese Patients: Towards New Phenotypic Markers for an Optimized Care Pathway

Obesity is a worldwide epidemic associated with many complications. The treatment of obesity is a failure if it does not take into account eating disorders. Among them, food addictions seem to be frequent among obese patients. Clinical diagnosis and therapeutic approaches depend on presence of these FA. Moreover, eating disorders ...

Improving Treatment Outcomes for Prescription Opioid Dependence

Opioid dependence is a serious public health problem, particularly with the dramatic rise in prescription opioid abuse, but long-term opioid agonist maintenance with methadone or buprenorphine (BUP) may not be optimal for many prescription opioid abusers. Yet current opioid detoxification strategies are limited by high relapse rates and/or lack of ...

Progesterone Effect on Individuals Diagnoses With AD and PTSD.

This is a randomized control trial with 36 participants diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and comorbid alcohol dependence. Participants will be randomized to receive either progesterone (200 mg. bid) or placebo in identical looking capsules for three days. One goal of this research study is to test if progesterone ...

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 ...
