Symptoms Of Addiction
How It Works
Conventional ways of dealing with alcohol, opioid, or cocaine dependency like A.A., N.A., group therapy, and medication can be effective. Yet many don't respond to traditional treatments, or the side effects of medications become intolerable.
As these cases become more common, new approaches are necessary to meet the evolving needs of treatment seekers. Here at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry, we’re meeting those demands —in turn transforming lives — via revolutionary research development.
And you have the opportunity to be part of it.
We’re conducting a free and confidential 12-week treatment research program that combines individual clinic visits with innovative and investigative medications.
While these medications have other uses, they are only now being examined for their role in treating dependency problems. These medications will be given twice during the program.
The addiction treatment research will involve 2 visits per week for 12 weeks to meet with our clinical research team and physician.
You’ll receive support and guidance throughout the process from trained professionals who care about you and aim to see you succeed.
Including psychotherapy, mindfulness practices, and investigative medications in a supportive and safe environment at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
Personalized clinic visits, medication, psychiatric assessments, and close monitoring of physical health.
Free substance abuse treatment for alcohol, cocaine (including crack), and opioids (including heroin).
These vary by person and by substance; however, they include a cluster of symptoms indicating ongoing use of the substance despite significant substance-related problems.
We'll talk through pros, cons, and whether the program is a good fit.

We’ve replaced many on-site visits with virtual visits —making it possible to connect with your provider from the comfort, convenience, and safety of your home. HIPAA-compliant video teleconferencing (e.g., Zoom, WebEx, Skype, or FaceTime) or the telephone will be used to communicate remotely. Each session should take between 30 and 75 minutes.
