A Baseline for Investigating Diffusion of Innovation

The "Baseline Study" was designed to help us better understand the Community Treatment Programs participating in the NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN). Using a series of surveys, the study sought to 1) describe the programs and practitioners delivering drug abuse treatment services within the CTN; 2) build a system that can track changes in program and staff characteristics; 3) allow treatment program managers to compare their program to others both within the CTN and nationwide; and 4)promote studies of organizational change and the characteristics that predict whether research-based treatment strategies will become part of usual treatment in a program.
