The development of new medications plays a central role in the advancement of medical treatments and the improvement of patients' quality of life. All new medications go through several stages or phases of testing to demonstrate their safety and effectiveness before physicians can prescribe them to their patients. At the heart of this process are research studies called clinical trials. In a clinical trial, the new medication is typically compared to either a currently approved medication and/or a placebo (a pill that looks like the new medication but contains no active ingredients).

Our Mission

To facilitate the discovery and enhance our knowledge of the latest treatments in behavioral health, and to achieve the fullest understanding of our patients. This two-fold approach assures our patients the best possible care.

Your Informed Consent

Participation in a clinical trial is completely voluntary. The decision to participate should only be made after thorough consideration of all available information. Before you enter a clinical trial, the study doctor and study staff will fully describe the purpose of the study, what is expected of each participant, and the potential risks and benefits that you may experience.

All potential participants are presented with a document that contains this information as well as a complete description of each element of the trial. You must read, discuss and finally sign this document, called the “Consent Form,” before any study related procedures can be performed.

Throughout the course of the trial, any new information that becomes available regarding trial procedures or medication will be provided to you in a timely manner. You can choose to end your involvement in a clinical trial at any time and for any reason.

Safety and Well-being

The safety and well-being of a participant in a clinical trial are the primary concerns of the clinical trial staff. In order to insure these concerns are addressed, your participation in the clinical trial includes meeting with the trial doctor and staff on a frequent basis to monitor progress. It is very important that you attend all visits, honestly answer all questions regarding the trial medication and your health, and follow the instructions of the clinical trial staff.
