The Girman Family Foundation have provided a generous gift of support for Substance Use Disorder treatment research under the direction of Stacey Daughters and Flavio Frohlich!
The funding will advance the development of combined brain stimulation and cognitive behavioral treatments for opiate use disorder. The Girmans lost their son, Alexander (Alec) V. Girman, in October 2021 due to substance use, and they recognize that escalating use and misuse of opioids is a crisis in this country. They are hoping that the research will expedite the dissemination of brain stimulation technology to individuals suffering from substance use disorder who need it the most. Stacey and Flavio are honored to receive this support and we look forward to pursuing research in honor of the Girman family.
