Treatment Enhancements

This Center has conducted several projects that have evaluated the impact of various enhancements to standard addictions treatment. Some of these studies have also sought to determine whether focused matching of extra services to specific co-occurring problems (e.g., psychiatric, family/social, employment) at the level of the individual patient improves treatment outcome. Recent projects have included a study that compared the impact on outcomes of adding incentives for abstinence to providing additional counseling services to prevent relapse.
