The Appalachian Tri-State Node joined the Clinical Trials Network in September 2005. The Node is a partnership between Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and six core and six ancillary community treatment programs (CTPs) in Eastern Ohio, West Virginia, and Western Pennsylvania. This Node serves over 15,000 patients annually in urban and rural settings in all types of addiction and dual disorder treatment programs. Special interests and capabilities of the ATS Node include treating patients in rural settings, those with co-occurring psychiatric disorders, those with pain, veterans, adolescents, women with children, criminal justice involved clients, HIV/AIDS clients, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered clients, and opiate addicts in need of maintenance treatment. The ATS Node also has a strong commitment in training professionals, developing treatment manuals, and developing recovery materials for clients and their families.
