Accelerating the dissemination of research-based drug abuse treatment findings into community-based practice is a key priority for NIDA and represents the core mission of the NIDA/SAMHSA Blending Initiative. This initiative is NIDA’s most recent and innovative effort to accelerate the dissemination of research-based drug abuse treatment findings into the community-based practice. NIDA’s partnership with SAMHSA has led to the creation of Blending Teams, which are composed of members from SAMHSA’s Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network and NIDA researchers who have worked closely to collectively develop Blending Team products.
