A study is being conducted by the Center for Addiction Recovery Research at Texas Tech University. We are conducting a research study to compare family members with adult children or spouses of individuals who have an alcohol use disorder to parents with adult children or spouses of individuals who do not. We are looking for our control group, which consists of spouses or biological parents 18-65 years of age, who have no substance dependence themselves. Also, they must have a spouse or an adult child, ages 18-65, that they could reference in this study who has no history or present substance use disorders. Control group participants must also have no family history of any addiction in the generation above or below them. All participants will complete a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain scan at the Texas Tech Neuroimaging Institute (TTNI), fill out some additional surveys and complete a behavioral task, lasting a total of approximately 65-80 minutes on Texas Tech campus. Qualifying participants will be compensated $25 for their time.
