What can I expect during a screening visit?
Although each study is different, several aspects of the screening visit are similar across studies. We will review a consent form with you and answer any questions you might have. We will ask you to complete several questionnaires and conduct an interview where we ask about different psychological symptoms people sometimes experience, as well as information about your alcohol, tobacco and drug use. Breath Alcohol Content (breathalyzer) tests and urine drug toxicology screens will also be performed. All of our studies require that your Breath Alcohol Content is 0.000 at your screening visit to ensure that you are competent to consent to the study.
How do I participate?
