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.

Dr. Glen R. Hanson, NIDA Acting Director, says, "This collaborative effort puts into place a system whereby health care providers can be more rapidly alerted to new and improved medications and behavioral therapies with which to treat patients for drug abuse and addiction."

SAMHSA Administrator Charles G. Curie noted that "This partnership is a significant step in our efforts working with the National Institutes of Health to define and develop a "Science to Services" cycle and to reduce the time between the discovery of an effective treatment or intervention and its adoption as part of community-based care. 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
