Arizona State University BARCA Lab

Arizona State University BARCA Lab

The Behavioral Alcohol Research for Clinical Advancement [BARCA] lab conducts laboratory and survey research on processes involved in the development of alcohol-related problems including alcohol use disorders. Laboratory-based studies are conducted in a simulated bar on the Arizona State University campus [The BARCA Lounge]. Participants are administered alcohol and then observed in this quasi-naturalistic setting. Survey studies are designed to track drinking and other risky behaviors longitudinally to identify risk and protective factors for the development of related problems. The goal of both types of studies is to better inform prevention and intervention efforts. The BARCA lab will continue to apply the knowledge gained through experimental and longitudinal studies to the prevention and treatment of addictive behaviors.

University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry Addiction Center

University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry Addiction Center

The Program and its faculty sustain ties with numerous organizations and operating structures within and outside the University. Such relationships are essential to our ongoing mission; they allow the development of a scientific agenda that would not be possible without such connections, and they provide a set of clinical connections that enhance training activity and allow treatment evaluation studies to recruit patients as subjects. Foremost among these are: (a) UMATS, the Program's clinical arm; (b) and the Ann Arbor Veterans Affairs Medical Center. A number of faculty hold appointments with both institutions (Barry, Blow, Ilgen). The VAMC operates an outpatient substance abuse program; and VAMC patients participate as subjects in Program research studies. In addition, Dr. Frederic Blow is Director of the VA's Serious Mental Illness Treatment Research and Evaluation Center (SMITREC). In addition to these relationships, the Program has ongoing research and/or clinical collaborations/projects with a large number of Departments and Centers at University of Michigan. These relationships establish connections with entities both within the Medical School/UMHS as well as outside of it, involve long-standing collaborations with Michigan State University; the University of Arkansas Medical Center; the Oregon Health & Science University, and the University of Idaho.

USC HEAL Health, Emotion, and Addiction Laboratory

USC HEAL Health, Emotion, and Addiction Laboratory

Most people are aware that tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs lead to addiction, cancer, and other health and social problems, but they still use them! The people over at the Health, Emotion and Addiction Laboratory believe that psychoactive drugs continue to be a problem in our society because they are very powerful, acute mood-altering agents. Drugs of abuse hijack the circuits of the brain that produce mood and motivation. These circuits are designed to respond to natural events, like food, sex, and social interaction. When the brain is exposed to drugs, unnatural changes in the way we think and feel ensue, which can result in paradoxical addictive behaviors, like the continuation of drug use despite experiencing severe negative consequences. Given this background, our research places high priority investigating the contextual factors that modulate the mood-altering and addictive effects of drugs. These contextual factors can be as broad as the social-environmental forces of discrimination and disadvantage and as narrow as the internal-psychobiological states produced by gene transcription and the release of neuro-active hormones. We call this program of research sociopharmacology, which studies why, how, and for whom drugs are addictive. Sociopharmacology applies field-based correlational research, lab-based experimental psychopharmacology research, and ecological momentary assessment to examine individual differences and contextual moderators of the mood-altering effects of drugs.
