Bridging the Gap Between Practice and Research:
Forging Partnerships with Community-Based Drug and Alcohol Treatment
Community-based organizations provide the bulk of the substance-abuse treatment administered in the United States, but often they operate without the benefit of insights from the latest research. This report from the Institute of Medicine, Bridging the Gap Between Practice and Research: Forging Partnerships with Community-Based Drug and Alcohol Treatment, examines why substance-abuse research remains remote from treatment, and makes recommendations to federal agencies, community providers, and other decision-makers for linking research, policy development, and treatment; for building and disseminating knowledge about addiction; and for helping patients become informed advocates.
This briefing was for Members and Congressional Staff. The report was publicly released on May 13, 1998 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
