New Partnerships for a Changing Environment: Why Drug and Alcohol Treatment Providers and Researchers Need to Collaborate


This brochure illustrates the gaps between drug and alcohol treatment providers and researchers and suggests ways to bridge them. It is based on a report of the Institute of Medicine's Committee on Community-Based Drug Treatment Research, which stresses the value of decreasing barriers and enhancing relationships between community-based treatment programs and the drug and alcohol abuse research community. The report also provides practical solutions for how this can be achieved.
