Non-Treatment Clinical Research

The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs also recruits participants for non-treatment laboratory studies. These studies help us learn about basic biological, genetic or behavioral aspects of alcohol use and abuse. Many of these studies provide payment to participants.


Call 843-792-1222 or email for more information regarding our Non-Treatment Studies during regular business hours; M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911 or visit the nearest emergency medical center.
