Sleep and Smoking Study

Are you a regular marijuana smoker? Do you want to improve your sleep? If so, you may be eligible for a paid treatment study at the Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic. To determine eligibility, give us a call at 850-645-1766. You will complete a brief phone screen, and if it looks like we are a good fit for your needs, we will schedule you for an appointment.

At this appointment, you will meet with a staff member to answer some questions about your mental health history, fill out self-report measures, and complete an emotional task. If you are eligible, you will then take part in your assigned treatment, which will consist of four sessions over four weeks. These can be scheduled at your convenience, and two will take place over the phone. You will be asked to complete one week and three month follow-ups after you complete the treatment. You can either earn FSU research credits or monetary compensation for your participation, and you will receive free treatment and a free assessment of your sleep as part of your study participation.


The Anxiety & Behavioral Health Clinic (ABHC), in conjunction with the Florida State University (FSU) Psychology Department, are seeking paid volunteers for a new research study geared toward combat veterans. Dr. Brad Schmidt, ABHC Director and FSU faculty member, was awarded a grant through the Department of Defense with colleague Dr. Wen Li to develop a protocol for reducing combat-related re-experiencing symptoms. We have successfully developed this protocol over the past 6 months with the help of veterans from our local community. We are now looking for additional volunteers to participate in the final phase, which will seek to evaluate how feasible, acceptable, and effective this protocol is for combat veterans in a community setting. For more information, please contact the ABHC at 850-645-1766.


The Anxiety and Behavioral Health Clinic is recruiting participants for a paid research study examining the effects of childhood stress on young adults. If you are over the age of 18, and grew up experiencing verbal, emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, you may be eligible to participate in a three week study. As part of the study, you can be paid up to $40 for completing a two hour baseline/intervention appointment, a 1.5 hour challenge appointment, and a 30 minute follow-up appointment across three consecutive weeks. All appointments will take place in the afternoon.

If you'd like more information or want to complete a brief informational screener, please email and a research assistant will be in touch with you shortly.
