Research/Clinical Interests:

Dr. Myrick’s research interests include the pharmacological treatment of addictive disorders.  Specifically, he has completed trials using anticonvulsant agents in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, alcoholism, and cocaine dependence.  In addition, Dr. Myrick was awarded a K Award by NIAAA to use neuroimaging to determine the neuronal networks associated with craving.

Dr. Myrick has written manuscripts and book chapters on the pharmacotherapy of substance abuse and dual diagnosis, and he speaks frequently on these topics at major association meetings.  He is actively involved in intramural committees and mentoring activities as well professional organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the Research Society on Alcoholism, and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry.
