Alcohol dependence and drug addiction is a chronic, relapsing brain disease defined by a physical and psychological dependence of prescription drugs, illicit drugs, or alcohol. Through the abuse of drugs and alcohol, a tolerance can build up leading users to require increasing amounts of the substance to maintain their intoxication or ‘high’. Intoxication can alter or impair judgement, perception, attention, muscle control, and physical coordination.
Once an addiction disorder has formed, a person will pursue their habits despite putting themselves and potentially others in harm's way. Substance addiction can lead to problems in both health and in personal relationships.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of alcohol dependence and drug addiction. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
