April 25, 2022
Posted in:

SMART Recovery is partnering with researchers from the University of New Mexico for a study on alcohol recovery. Using the PERMA Model, Positive emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishments, they will evaluate the profiles among individuals who self-identify as being in recovery from alcohol use disorder (AUD), to help bridge the gap between the fields of positive psychology and addiction.

Study participants:

  • Must be 18+
  • Must take the two, online surveys in English
  • Must identify as in recovery from an alcohol use disorder
  • Will receive Amazon gift cards totaling $30

The study is open until Monday, May 16, 2022 or when the 250 number participants is reached, whichever is first.

For questions, please contact: Lead Researcher, Hannah Carlon, [email protected]
