For Patients

What we do

Insite Clinical Research is an independent research site working towards a goal of better understanding and treating psychiatric disorders by helping bring additional pharmaceutical products to market for both patients and professionals.

What is Clinical Research?

Clinical research is a branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use. These may be used for prevention, treatment, diagnosis or for relieving symptoms of a disease.

Why Participate

Eligible volunteers receive professional care, health examinations, investigational medication and close monitoring at no cost.

Study related care is provided by board certified physicians and physician assistants.

Participation in clinical research is confidential and voluntary.

Access to promising new treatments often not available outside of clinical-trial setting.

The chance to help society by contributing to medical research. Even if you don’t directly benefit from the results of the clinical trial you take part in, the information gathered can help others and adds to scientific knowledge.

People who take part in clinical trials are vital to the process of improving medical care.

Eligible Participants may receive a stipend in exchange for their time, travel and participation in volunteering for clinical trials.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need health insurance to participate in clinical trials?

Health insurance is not necessary in order to be considered or to participate in a clinical trial.

What is informed consent?

Informed consent is the process of learning about the clinical trial before you decide to take part in it. The research team running the trial will explain the trial’s purpose, how long it will take, what will happen, all potential risks and benefits, and information on the privacy of your medical records.


If you want to participate, you will sign a consent form that details all of the information that has been discussed with the research team. You will be able to take that form home and refer to it at any time. Even though you have signed the consent form, you still have the right to leave the study at any time and for any reason.

What are the possible risks of participating in a clinical trial?

 A clinical trial can sometimes require more time and medical attention than normal care. This can include doctor visits, phone calls, more treatments, a hospital stay, or a more complicated treatment regimen.

Are clinical trials safe?

Yes.  Every clinical trial must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits. Once the trial is approved by the IRB, the organizers of the study must follow a careful plan, called a protocol, that describes exactly what will happen during the study.  You will know the full details of the protocol prior to joining any clinical trial.
