Addictive disorders such as alcohol use disorder, nicotine dependence, illicit drug addiction and pathological gambling are among the most widespread psychiatric disorders in Canada and around the world. Approximately one in five Canadians experience addiction over their lifetime. The PATH Registry's purpose is to gather information from volunteers with or without addiction problem to develop a cohort for future research studies that will help us further our understanding of the causes, consequences and treatment of individuals with addiction disorder.
We will use ID numbers so that there will be no personal identifiers to the information collected from you.
Your participation will not involve any costs to you or your health insurer. We will provide you with parking or bus voucher and a gift card of $30 as a token of appreciation for your participation.
