The main mission of the NIDA CTN is to determine the effectiveness of drug abuse treatment interventions among diverse client populations and settings. To address dissemination of research findings, the CTN also has as its mission the transfer of research findings to treatment providers. In a qualitative study of adoption of evidence-based practice in the context of two CTN clinical trials (CTN-0004 and -0005), the authors of this paper interviewed 29 participants from seven organizational levels within the CTN (e.g. clinician, supervisor, intervention designer) about post-trial adoption of new interventions, their role in the clinical trial, and interactions between the research initiative and clinic staff and setting. Analysis of interview data revealed a range of opinion among participants on the place of adoption within the CTN. Innovation within the CTN to support adoption and further observational research on dynamics of adoption within the CTN can increase dissemination of evidence-based drug abuse treatment interventions in the future.
