Participate in Research

Have you ever considered participating in a research project?

OSLC sometimes recruits children, adolescents, and parents to be part of the research studies.  Participation is strictly voluntary and is monitored by an independent Institutional Review Board. Look below to see if a research study may be right for you.

Currently Recruiting For These Projects

CM Project

The CM Project is actively recruiting families seeking substance use treatment for adolescents ages 12-18. Families receive 20-24 weeks of family based Contingency Management treatment at one of two Adolescent and Family Services clinic locations: OSLC or Centro Latino Americano. Treatment, in English or Spanish, is provided at no cost as part of the CM Project research study. For participating in the research interviews, families may earn up to $300 over a 12 month period.

For more information or to enroll, please call Adolescent and Family Services at 541-284-7560 or visit us at afsclinic.org.

PRE-FAIR Program

PRE-FAIR is a prevention-oriented program that provides parenting support in Benton, Linn, Lincoln, Lane, and Douglas counties. PRE-FAIR is based on the Families Actively Improving Relationships (FAIR) model. There is a current study opportunity to help us evaluate the effectiveness of PRE-FAIR; half of the volunteers will receive PRE-FAIR, and the other half will receive the services available in the community. Parents can earn up to $920 in the form of gift cards for participating in the research interviews.

For more information about study eligibility, please call Ryan Singh at 541-844-8532.
