NIDA and SAMHSA agreement expedites transfer of research findings to clinical practice

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) today announced a unique intra-agency agreement to expedite the application of findings from treatment research into clinical application.

The $1.5 million agreement between NIDA and SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) will help ensure that findings from NIDA's treatment research will be quickly and readily available to practitioners around the country.

Today, the Institute of Medicine tells us it can take up to 20 years."

Under the agreement, NIDA will provide funding to support CSAT's Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC), a network comprised of 14 independent regional centers and a national office charged with increasing the knowledge and skills of addiction treatment practitioners and fostering alliances to support and implement best treatment practices. The purpose of the agreement is to enhance efforts to disseminate and apply findings from NIDA's National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) as well as other NIDA-supported studies to practitioners served by the ATTCs.

Grants totaling almost $6 million were awarded this week to add three nodes--Northern New England (covering 5 states), New Mexico, and Arizona--to NIDA's CTN. The network. is now comprised of 1
