The Big South/West Node was established in 2020 as a collaborative partnership of UT Southwestern Medical Center, UT Health Science Center, and University of California, Los Angeles. Substance use, particularly the use of stimulants and opioids in the fourth wave of the opioid epidemic, are a major public health problem. Research is needed to develop new substance use disorder treatments and to determine how to best broadly disseminate the treatments that are currently available and effective. Researchers and treatment providers in the Clinical Trials Network’s Big South/West Node contribute their expertise to solving this crisis impacting our nation and our Southern region.
