Method: Experiences of People Who Use Methamphetamine

The Method Study is looking for people who 1) use methamphetamines (“meth”) and 2) have visited an emergency department recently, to fill out a confidential survey and possible interview. The purpose of our study is to understand the motivations, experiences, and attitudes of people who use meth. The findings from our study will help us improve access to care for people who use meth when they come to an emergency department.

If you qualify for the study, you will complete a 20-30 minute survey for which you will be compensated $5 of an electronic gift card of your choosing. Depending on your answers, you may be selected to complete an audio-recorded interview which will take 30 minutes and given an additional $25 for a total of $30.

All of this study will take place over the phone and scheduled at your convenience.

This study is confidential and we take measures to safeguard the identity of our participants at the highest level of security.
