Center Goals

The primary mission of the Center on the Continuum of Care in the Addictions is to:

  • Develop evidence-based procedures, protocols, and interventions that will be attractive and affordable to treatment programs and systems
  • Change the way treatment programs and systems, state agencies, policy makers, and funders think about optimal ways to provide addiction services and manage substance use disorders over time
  • Collaborate with large agencies or systems to implement new adaptive models of care on a major scale
  • Continue research to improve effectiveness and utilization
  • Attract new investigators to the field and facilitate their career development; provide training to students, clinicians, clinical managers and administrators, and policy makers; and promote synergistic collaboration with creative individuals from other disciplines at Penn and elsewhere.
