Linking Services to Patient Needs for Improved Patient Outcomes (CASPAR)

The proposed research study is directed at performing health services research in an estimated 15 community-based abstinence-oriented outpatient addiction treatment programs by developing ways of incorporating research-derived measures into standard clinical practice in the treatment of substance abuse clients. The primary goals are to use training and technology transfer to ...

Phase N/A

Contingency Management for Smoking in Substance Abusers

Substance abusers have a high prevalence and rate of smoking with little success in quitting, so stronger approaches are needed to encourage attempts to quit smoking.

These neuroimaging techniques will be used ...

Phase N/A

Behavioral Treatment of Adolescent Substance Use

The study will test two novel strategies to enhance outcomes. Working Memory Training (WMT), an efficacious method for strengthening specific cognitive processes, aims to improve factors (e.g., delay discounting / impulsive decision-making) that have shown a strong relation to substance use and treatment response.
