SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) recently published Building Practice Improvement Collaboratives: Eleven Case Studies. The 104-page monograph covers 11 case studies of CSAT's Practice Improvement Collaboratives (PIC) program. The PIC program was designed to help improve substance abuse treatment by expanding the adoption of evidence-based practices through the collaborative efforts of providers, researchers, and policymakers. (See SAMHSA News, Volume XI, Number 4.) In the 11 case studies presented in the monograph, PIC participants describe their activities and accomplishments, challenges, and lessons learned during the 12-month developmental phase of the program.
