This node is now inactive. (Merged with the New England Node to form the New England Consortium Node in 2010)
The Northern New England Node is a partnership between clinical addiction researchers at Harvard Medical School, other universities, and CTPs located in New England states -- Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Together, the CTPs had over 48,000 admissions in 2001 for substance use disorders. The CTPs provide services to an ethnically diverse patient population with a variety of substance use disorders in rural, suburban, and urban locales. Special populations include individuals with comorbid psychiatric and medical illnesses, HIV-infected individuals, adolescents, pregnant women, and individuals involved with the criminal justice system.
