NIDA announces new awards for the Clinical Trials Network


October 08, 2015

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is pleased to announce the award of 13 grants to fund the continuation of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN).  The CTN provides a means by which treatment providers, researchers, and community-based service providers develop, validate, and deliver new treatment options to patients. The grants will support studies on behavioral and pharmacological therapeutic interventions in rigorous, multi-site clinical trials to determine their effectiveness across a broad range of community-based treatment settings and diversified patient populations. The research findings will be shared with physicians, clinicians, providers and patients in order to help bridge the gap between research findings and treatment.

The CTN framework consists of 13 Nodes, a Clinical Coordinating Center, and a Data and Statistics Center. This framework links a variety of treatment providers and patient populations nationwide, allowing for rapid testing of promising science-based therapies and the subsequent delivery of these treatments to patients in a variety of treatment settings.
