Substance Use Treatment with Ethnic Minorities: Lessons Learned in the Clinical Trials Network of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Symposium presented at the American Psychological Association (APA) convention, Washington, DC, August 4-7, 2011.

Ann Kathleen Burlew, PhD (Crossroads Center, OV Node), Carmen L. Rosa, MS (Center for the Clinical Trials Network, NIDA), Audrey J. Brooks, PhD (University of Arizona, WS Node), Jerren C. Weekes, MA (University of Cincinnati, OV Node), Alyssa A. Forcehimes, PhD (University of New Mexico, SW Node).

This set of slides features presentations from a symposium at the 2011 APA convention that focused on substance use treatment with ethnic minorities in the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network. It begins with an overview of the CTN and its aim to improve substance abuse treatment by bridging the gap between practice and research, and then continues with presentations on a variety of ancillary investigations of CTN protocols: a comparison of gender, race/ethnicity, and age groups in people participating in CTN studies; racial/ethnic differences in the rates and correlates of HIV risk behaviors among drug abusers; the relation of racial/ethnic matching to engagement, retention, and treatment outcomes for adolescent substance users; and the relationship between therapist and patient gender/race-matching and substance use outcomes in two motivational therapy trials (CTN-0004 and CTN-0021). Results from each ancillary investigation are presented, along with discussion of the outcomes and study limitations. (Presentation, PowerPoint slides, English, 2011)
