If alcohol is a problem for you, STARS may be able to help. Participation in our treatment research studies for Alcohol Use Disorder is completely voluntary, free, and confidential.
As a research participant enrolled in one of our alcohol addiction treatment studies, you can expect your treatment at our clinic to include any or all of the following, depending upon the study:
Detoxification: Some of our research studies involve brief hospitalization on a specialized research unit in order to safely initiate abstinence from alcohol and to monitor for and treat alcohol withdrawal.
Our medical team of board-certified addiction psychiatrists and trained nurse practitioners may provide medication for you to take over the course of the study. In addition, they may meet with you to assess your physical and mental health and ensure your safety throughout.
Our treatment research team includes psychologists, licensed social workers, trained counselors, and other mental health professionals. As part of your treatment, you may be offered private, one-on-one weekly therapy with one of our therapists.
Our trained research staff will assess your vital signs, periodically collect blood and urine samples, and obtain electrocardiograms (EKGs) and other assessments for review by physicians
CONTINUITY OF CARE
We will work with you to ensure that you have proper referrals to continue treatment after leaving our care at the end of our treatment studies.
