Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
What is the study about?
Naltrexone hydrochloride is a treatment used to reduce alcohol cravings with those who consume alcohol. It is currently in the form of a tablet and injection. This study would like to see if this already established drug is able to treat alcohol use disorder in the form of a nasal spray.
Who can take part?
We are looking for people over the age of 18+ who have been diagnosed with alcohol use disorder within the past 6 months
What is involved?
The study lasts for 21 weeks which include:
1 week screening period (to fully determine if you are suitable for the research trial)
16-week treatment period
4-week follow up phase (ensure there are no problems with your health)
