Since the early 1980’s, Dr. Boyd has conducted mixed-method studies that focus on behavioral factors related to gender, alcohol, tobacco or drug use and abuse. Her NIH funded research continues to focus on populations that are difficult to study, most recently focusing on adolescent and young adults who misuse controlled medications, including stimulants, sedative/hypnotics and opioids. For this research, she used web-based methodologies to survey adolescents and young adults on substance use/abuse behaviors; conducted secondary analysis of pre-existing national databases (e.g. NESARC and MTF); and lastly used mixed-method designs to better understand adolescents’ nonmedical use of prescription medications, including the diversion of these medications. Funding for her studies has come from various foundations (e.g. Robert Wood Johnson), the Michigan Department of Corrections, the National Institute of Justice, and the NIH (NIAAA and NIDA). Currently, she is funded by NIDA to engage in a prospective study of adolescents’ nonmedical use of prescription medications.
Current Research Grants and Programs:
