UW Marijuana and Tobacco Treatment Study
The University of Washington is conducting a confidential study seeking adult marijuana and tobacco users who are interested in trying to quit marijuana. The study offers a 12-24 week program that includes a combination of individual and computer assisted counseling sessions. Participants can earn up to $435 over the course of treatment for being abstinent from marijuana.

All services are provided free. Participants must be available to come to our clinic location in Seattle's University District two times per week for twelve to twenty-four weeks and to participate in research assessments (also compensated). For more information on this confidential study, call (206) 616-3235 or email uwmatts@uw.edu
