Goals and fields of research

Indicators for quality of treatment of addictive disorders

Following the DGPPN initiative "Indicators for quality of treatment of mental disorders", we aim to determine via catamnesis if patients who underwent different therapies (such as inpatient detoxication or qualified withdrawal treatment) and who did or did not make use of an outpatient support programme differ regarding abstention or relapse rates.

Prediction of success of a medication-supported abstinence treatment

We aim to determine in a naturalistic study if polymorphisms in the µ-opioid receptors can aid in the prediction of success of a treatment with opioid antagonists such as naltrexon or nalmefen.

 

We are am member of the Interdisciplinary Addiction Research Center of the University of Würzburg.

Publications

Publications of the working group can be found on pubmed or in the list of publications of our hospital.
