Washington DC Area Buprenorphine/Suboxone Study

I received information about a study several weeks ago and meant to post it, but got wrapped up in a couple other things.  Hopefully the information will still be of use to someone.  Participants in the study earn up to $620 in gift cards.

The study, funded by NIDA, examines the effects of lyrical on chronic pain in patients taking  buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv).  Patients should live in the DC area and be:

– Aged 21 to 60

– In general good health (e.g., no history of stroke, heart disease, liver or renal disease)

– Enrolled and compliant in Suboxone treatment

– Medically diagnosed with chronic pain

Suboxone/Buprenorphine Survey

The folks at NAABT are asking for people on buprenorphine to complete a short survey.  Respondents are eligible for prizes.  Here is the copy from the NAABT announcement:
