For Research Participants

Current research studies actively recruiting participants in Dr. Bedi’s lab include the following:

1. Recovery Transitions Study:

  • Have you ever experienced a significant problems with your use of alcohol at any point in your past but not at present (at least one year of abstinence or controlled drinking)
  • Are you interested in participating in a series of free group counselling sessions regarding your life transitions after recovery?

Recovery Transitions is a UBC study that aims to examine whether a series of 6 facilitated group sessions will enhance emotional wellbeing during the life transitions that occur in recovery after shifting to abstinence or non-problematic drinking.

Participants will be paid up to $120 to complete a series of questionnaires before and after the group sessions.
