Volunteers Needed for Alcohol Recovery Research Study

**Update** The study is closed. The 250 participant count has been met. Thank you to all who volunteered.

SMART Recovery is partnering with researchers from the University of New Mexico for a study on alcohol recovery. Using the PERMA Model, Positive emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishments, they will evaluate the profiles among individuals who self-identify as being in recovery from alcohol use disorder (AUD), to help bridge the gap between the fields of positive psychology and addiction.

Study participants:

  • Must be 18+
  • Must take the two online surveys in English
  • Must identify as being in recovery from an alcohol use disorder
  • Will receive Amazon gift cards totaling $30

The study is open until Monday, May 16, 2022, or when 250 participants are signed up.

For questions, please contact: Lead Researcher, Hannah Carlon, hcarlon@unm.edu
