The research department at Psychiatric Associates conducts trials in General Psychiatry as well as in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Areas of interest include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder among others.

Since 1998, Sponsors and monitors have been impressed with the site's documentation, adherence to collecting quality data, high completion rates, and prompt response to queries. The site has consistently led or been in the top 10 % of sites in enrollment-attention are paid to the quality not quantity of enrollment, which tends to lead to a high completion rate.
