How do I participate?

Update (11/9/2017)

We  completed the data collection and are not taking any more appointments. 



You may have seen a flyer or a card about this study or may have been invited by your peers. To be eligible to participate, you need to be an IV user, 18 years old or older, speak English and live in Greater Detroit area. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.

Call/text: 734-277-8807, or

By appointment only. No walk-ins.

When you visit our office, you will be greeted by our field researchers who will administer a short screening questionnaire to verify your eligibility. If eligible, you will be asked to take a survey that will take about 20-30 minutes on a computer. The survey questions are audio-recorded and ask your health status and current and past drug use. At the completion of the survey, we will provide $30 in cash as a token of appreciation.

Some of you will also be given invitation coupons that you can give to your peers so that they can also participate. If they participate, you will be given additional $10 per person who participate in this study. We will provide instructions for how to invite your peers at the end of your visit. On your return visit for the recruitment reward, you will be given a chance to complete a 3-5 minute follow-up survey for an additional $5 reward.
