In April 2018, NIDA introduced the CTN Dissemination Initiative, building on the previously-named NIDA/SAMHSA Blending Initiative. The CTN Dissemination Intitiative incorporates collaboration between clinicians, scientists, and experienced trainers. It three components facilitate the adoption of research-based interventions into front-line clinical settings: Products and Materials; Meetings and Conferences; and Collaborative Partnerships with professional organizations serving the addiction treatment community as well as general medical settings such as primary and emergency care.
NIATx is a partnership between The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Paths to Recovery program, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment's Strengthening Treatment Access and Retention (STAR) program, and a number of independent treatment organizations. It works with behavioral health providers to improve access to and retention in treatment for all clients. Find out more here: http://www.niatx.net.
