Using NIATx Strategies to Implement Integrated Service in Routine Care

The overarching goal of this research is to determine if NIATx strategies are effective in implementing integrated services for persons with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. Using a cluster randomized wait-list control group design, 46 community addiction treatment agencies will participate. The first cohort of 23 agencies will utilize NIATx strategies during an index 12 month period. The second (wait-list) cohort of 23 agencies activates NIATx strategies during a second index 12 month period. Primary outcomes are assessed at pre- and post-implementation, and at annual sustainment evaluations. The study aims are:

Specific Aim 1: Relative to wait-list, to determine if NIATx strategies improve implementation outcomes.

Specific Aim 2: Relative to wait-list, to determine if NIATx strategies improve patient care outcomes.

Specific Aim 3: Across entire sample, to evaluate variation in the extent of and fidelity to NIATx strategies.
