Are you an OEF/OIF Veteran or Service Member?
Did you serve in the Iraq or Afghanistan or support those operations? If so, did you experience or witness a traumatic event, such as combat or a serious injury? Do you find that you are still affected by the event? For example, do you notice that you feel jumpy or irritable? Do you avoid situations that remind you of what happened, or have nightmares or unwanted memories? And do you find that you drink alcohol or use drugs to help cope with how the trauma has affected you? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a MUSC clinical trial testing a new therapy. You will be compensated for your time and information is kept strictly confidential. Transportation to appointments may be available.

Healthy individuals without any past or current alcohol or drug use problems are also needed to participate in the study. The study is examining the relationship between stress and drug cues. Compensation is provided. Information is kept strictly confidential.
