Practice Improvement Collaboratives: Final Report

SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) recently released Practice Improvement Collaboratives: Final Report. The 47-page report documents the successes of the 14 Practice Improvement Collaboratives (PICs) established throughout the United States as part of a 1998 SAMHSA initiative to facilitate the use of evidence-based practices in substance abuse treatment settings.

SAMHSA developed the program to assist organizations in creating collaborative networks at the city, state, and regional levels and awarded 3-year implementation grants to enable the networks to apply a science-to-service model in their programs. The PICs comprise practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and people in recovery. They respond to community needs and promote the adoption of evidence-based practices.

To obtain a copy of the report, contact SAMHSA's National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at P.O. Box 2345, Rockville, MD 20847-2345. Telephone: 1 (800) 729-6686 (English and Spanish) or 1 (800) 487-4889 (TDD). End of Article
