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 ...


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 ...


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 ...


Studying Partial-agonists for Ethanol and Tobacco Elimination in Russians With HIV (St PETER HIV)

HIV-infected heavy drinking smokers are at high risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) and death. The mechanisms driving increased CHD risk in HIV-infected people are unclear, but are linked to inflammation. HIV, heavy drinking, and smoking are all pro-inflammatory. HIV viral suppression with antiretroviral therapy does not eliminate the elevated ...


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 ...

Individuals diagnosed with alcohol dependence will be randomized to receive a single infusion of glutamate modulators during week 2 while engaged in a 5-week course of MET. They will meet with staff twice weekly, except for week 2 during which they will present to the clinic three times. Clinic visits ...
