Addictive Behaviors

What is the purpose of this trial?

This study aims to examine inflammation processes in the brain (neuroinflammatory and microglia markers). The proposed study will fill a major gap in our understanding of opioid addiction. The study entails a screening, mri, and PET scans. This study may also include an inpatient or outpatient treatment with buprenorphine maintenance therapy for opioid dependent participants.
