Training Opioid Addiction Treatment Providers to Adopt Contingency Management: A prospective pilot trial of a comprehensive implementation science approach

About the Course:

This study compared the effectiveness of an implementation model (Science to Service Laboratory; SSL) to training as usual (TAU) in promoting the adoption of contingency management across a multisite opioid addiction treatment program. In addition, the researchers examined whether the SSL affected putative mediators of contingency management adoption (perceived innovation characteristics and organizational readiness to change). The researchers found that relative to providers in the TAU region, treatment providers in the SSL region had comparable likelihood of contingency management adoption in the first 20 weeks of the study, and then significantly higher likelihood of adoption for the remainder of the study.
