Using Remote Monitoring Technology to Treat Problematic Drinking
Untreated alcohol use disorder among individuals unable or willing to attend existing treatment services as well as relapse after alcohol detoxification are substantial health concerns. The goals of this project are to evaluate a remote alcohol monitoring and abstinence incentives intervention we have piloted in two contexts: 1) the initiation and maintenance of abstinence remotely in underserved adults, and 2) the prevention of relapse remotely following inpatient clinical detoxification services. Through the use of technological advancements combined in a novel way with abstinence incentives, the proposed research has the potential to provide a framework for bringing effective, evidence-based treatments to a large number of individuals with alcohol use disorder. We are actively recruiting from the surrounding areas around Lexington, KY and Roanoke, VA.

Studies on Alcohol and Cigarette Use
We have several studies for individuals who currently use alcohol and cigarettes and are not looking to quit.
