Adoption of Evidence-Based Practices in the CTN.

Presented at the CTN 10th Anniversary Symposium, Albuquerque, NM, April 21, 2010.

Paul M. Roman, PhD and Amanda J. Abraham, PhD (University of Georgia).

This presentation explores organizational-level adoption, implementation, and discontinuation of evidence-based treatment practices (EBPs), comparing programs that participated in CTN research to programs that did not. It describes three University of Georgia platform studies that examined three specific EBPs: buprenorphine, motivational incentives, and alcohol pharmacotherapies. Overall, the studies found that there is greater adoption of EBPs in CTN versus non-CTN treatment programs, and that participating in research networks is important when it comes to promoting evidence-based practices.
