NIDA/NIH-FSPHP Research Study Opportunity!

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)/National Institutes of Health (NIH), in collaboration with the Federation of State Physician Health Programs (FSPHP), is conducting a research study to understand how neural circuitry and human physiology is changed by addiction and repaired by recovery.  Our PHP follows your recovery status closely – we understand your journey in recovery better than any other set of people in the world. This cohort—YOU—are essential to the goal of this research study – to identify brain biomarkers of addiction and thus, optimize the efficacy of currently available therapeutics.  Please contact Betty Jo Salmeron, M.D. at (443) 740-2651 or BSalmeron@nih.gov to learn more.   More information about the study is here too: https://fsphp.memberclicks.net/how-php-participants-can-get-involved.
