RESEARCH STUDY- GENES, ADDICTION AND PERSONALITY (GAP)

Researchers from VCU* are recruiting for a pilot study! The study seeks to better understand genetic and environmental influences in individuals with alcohol and other drug use disorders. Members of the recovery community who have struggled with alcohol and/or drug use, either now or in the past, are welcome to participate.

What’s involved? A 15-20 minute online survey about your personality, mental health, and substance use and collection of a saliva (DNA) sample.  Participants will receive gift cards for their time and effort.  How can you participate?  If you would like to see if you qualify for the GAP pilot study, please click on the link below.  This will take you through a short series of questions to see if you are eligible for the study.  If you are, you’ll be given additional information about the research before starting the survey.
