Beating the binge

  At the moment, we are not looking for new participants. However, we are busy preparing the third and final study within the ‘Beating the Binge’ research project, in which we are going to test the new app that we have developed. If you are interested in participating, please use the link in the top right corner to leave your email address (entirely without obligation). We will then contact you once we are ready to start the study!

(How) can I participate?

To check whether you are eligible to take part in the study, you first need to fill in a short online screening survey. If you click the link, you will first be presented with some more information about what participation entails exactly. Take your time to carefully read through this information. All data gathered during the screening will be handled strictly confidentially and will be stored in encrypted form. This means that safe data collection via the internet is guaranteed and it will not be possible to link the data back to you in any way.

Unfortunately, not everyone can participate. You can NOT take part in the study if you:

  • Are not living and/or studying in the Netherlands or Belgium
  • Do not own a smartphone
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) below 18.5 (click the link to calculate your BMI)
  • Are pregnant
  • Experience binges exclusively after drug use

Some psychological problems also rule out participation (for this we refer to the questionnaire).

After you have completed the screening survey, you will be informed right away whether or not you might belong to the target group of the study. If this is the case, you will be invited for a telephone interview during which further eligibility for the study will be determined.
