Pharmacogenetic Response to Naltrexone for Alcohol Dependence

The Treatment Research Center directs a wide range of outpatient research programs for alcohol and drug dependent patients. Patients benefit from substance abuse research; specialists provide evaluation and treatment programs for substance abuse patients. Treatment encompasses psychotherapy, medication and rehabilitation.

Do you or someone you know suffer from alcohol dependence?

The Treatment Research Center is currently conducting a clinical research study in which participants will receive Naltrexone, an FDA-approved medication for alcoholism, or placebo, an inactive medication.  If you or someone you know are interested, call 215-222-3200 ext. 156 for a confidential screening, or email Kim Colegrove for additional information.
