Leveraging Transdermal Alcohol Monitoring to Reduce Drinking among DWI Defendants (SCRAM2)

If you have recently been arrested for driving after drinking alcohol and live in the San Antonio area, you may be eligible to take part in a research study.  This study is for adults who have been arrested for alcohol-driving charges including driving while intoxicated or obstruction of highway.  This study is designed to determine the success in reducing drinking when given an incentive (like money) while wearing an alcohol detection monitor. Participation is voluntary and you will be compensated for your participation.

Consequences of Substance Use on the Development of Impulse Control (SUI2)

The SUI2 study is an ongoing investigation into how various psychological, physiological, and environmental factors interact to put someone at risk for substance use and substance use disorders throughout the course of adolescence into young adulthood. Since 2010, parents and their children from the San Antonio community have taken part in our study.

While the SUI study is no longer recruiting participants, we have several volunteers who help us with various tasks. If you are interested in volunteering with the SUI study, please see our “Careers and Training” page for contact information.
