The NIDA/SAMHSA Blending Initiative was developed to accelerate the dissemination of research-based drug abuse treatment findings into community-based practice. Its two primary components include NIDA Blending Conferences and the creation of Blending Team Products (training curricula, supervisory materials, etc.), developed by groups of NIDA researchers, community-based practitioners, and trainers from SAMSHA-funded Addiction Technology Transfer Centers.
Technology Transfer Centers is a nationwide,
multidisciplinary network and resource for professionals
in the addictions treatment and recovery services field.
Funded by SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment
(CSAT), the ATTC aims to raise awareness of evidence-based
and promising treatment and recovery practices, build skills
to prepare the workforce for delivering those practices,
and change practice in general by incorporating these new
skills into everyday use.
