Alcohol and Drug Use Clinical Research

At the Yale Stress Center we are developing new prevention and treatment strategies to decrease the harmful impact of stress, alcohol, and drugs on health, and increase the ability to regulate stress and have better self-control over addictive behavior.

There is now evidence to show that stress encourages addictive behaviors, bad habits and other poor lifestyle choices by disrupting brain function related to self-control, decision making, and normal healthy desire.

Stress increases the risk of these choices becoming bad habits, which in turn increases the risk of chronic disease. Breaking the link between stress and bad habits will decrease the risk of developing chronic diseases.

Compensation for participation up to $1075.
