NIAAA seeks volunteers for a research study on alcohol use disorder aimed at reducing craving for alcohol.

Background:
Hormones are naturally occurring chemicals in the body. Ghrelin is a hormone that stimulates appetite. It may also stimulate alcohol cravings and use. Researchers want to learn more about alcohol cravings and test if a drug that blocks ghrelin lowers alcohol cravings.
