Alcohol Friend Group Study

Sign up for our study today! (Click HERE)

Get started by filling out our confidential Qualtrics survey (above)! This survey will ask for a bit more information about yourself and your friend group and, assuming you meet initial eligibility, we can go ahead and set up a phone screening from there.

You can also email us directly at or if you have questions about the study or if you prefer to provide initial information via email.  We can also be reached via phone at 217 300-5850. Regardless of how you decide to contact us, all of the information you provide will be kept completely confidential, in keeping with UIUC’s IRB policies, and viewed only by members of the alcohol lab research team. If you decide you are not interested at any point, and ask not to be contacted, we will immediately erase your contact information from our files.

More Info About our Study

Thanks for your interest in our research! We are an Alcohol Research Laboratory in the Psychology Department at the University of Illinois.

The study we’re conducting right now looks at the effects of alcohol on cognitive and emotional processes in social drinkers and heavy social drinkers. Participation in this study involves completing a phone screening and attending one laboratory session lasting 6-9 hours (5 hours of experimental tasks + monitoring period). During the lab session, we’ll ask you to fill out some questionnaires and also engage in some tasks and activities. If you complete all study requirements and keep the original lab appointment you scheduled with us, you will get $100. To participate in our study, you must be at least 21 years of age (and no older than 30) and able and willing to consume alcohol (ID required). This study also involves friend groups, and so we will ask for same-gender friend referrals as part of this study.
