Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a major addiction-related public health problem. Cravings or urges to drink are one of the main characteristics of AUD and one of the primary causes of relapse to misuse. Researchers are looking to better treat for alcohol cravings and drinking behavior in order to reduce the public health burden posed by AUD.
Researchers are exploring an investigational treatment that may potentially reduce alcohol craving and encourage changes in alcohol consumption.
This study seeks men and women who consume more than 30 standard drinks per week. Participants are required to attend 4 study visits at the research site (MUSC) over a 3 week period and will be compensated for participating.
