National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network

A collaboration in which the National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment researchers, and community-based service providers cooperatively develop, validate, refine, and deliver new treatment options to patients in Community Treatment Programs (CTPs). The partnership between CTPs and academic research leaders aims to achieve the following objectives: * Conducting studies of behavioral, pharmacological, and integrated behavioral and pharmacological treatment interventions of therapeutic effect in rigorous, multisite clinical trials to determine effectiveness across a broad range of community-based treatment settings and diversified patient populations; and * Ensuring the transfer of research results to physicians, clinicians, providers, and patients. The CTN, with its core of CTPs engaging diverse populations, is also designed to provide a platform for other studies, which would be funded under separate research grants. Three important ways to use the CTN are: to conduct ancillary studies in connection with CTN protocols; to utilize CTN Node facilities as a platform for investigations; and for Nodes to serve as home bases for NIH Training Centers and individual researchers who have NIH fellowships or career development awards.
