Summary

High levels of brain iron have been found in individuals with cocaine use disorder but the clinical impact of this finding is unknown. The purpose of this research study is to understand if high brain iron in individuals with cocaine use disorder is related to disease severity. We will use non-invasive brain MRI to examine if high brain iron is associated with 1) abnormal brain circuits, and 2) behavioral and cognitive problems. If elevated brain iron is associated with these measures of disease severity, these finding would support a new area of treatment research targeting brain iron in cocaine use disorder.
