Reinforcing Exercise in Cocaine Abusers
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 10-010S-2
Title: Reinforcing Exercise in Cocaine Abusers
Principal Investigator: Dr. Nancy Petry
Description: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of an exercise-based contingency management (CM) intervention. A total of 120 cocaine abusing patients in intensive outpatient treatment will be randomly assigned to one of two conditions: (a) Standard care plus CM for completing goal-related activities not related to exercising (e.g., improving work, family or transportation issues), or (b) Standard care plus CM for completing exercise-related activities. The primary aims of the study are: 1) To determine if this CM exercise intervention increases activity levels and improved objective indicators of flexibility and strength. 2) To ascertain if a CM intervention that reinforces exercise decreases cocaine use. 3) To establish whether a CM exercise intervention reduces HIV risk behaviors. 4) To assess if CM for exercising reduces psychological distress. 5) To evaluate whether CM for exercise improves medical outcomes.
