NIDA Blending Packages


NIDA/SAMHSA Blending Initiative logoThe NIDA-SAMHSA Blending Initiative was developed to harness the skills, resources, and knowledge of two federal agencies, to facilitate moving important scientific findings into mainstream addiction treatment practice. Developed in 2001 by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, this project is designed to meld science and practice together to improve substance use disorder treatment and accelerate the dissemination of research-based drug abuse treatment findings into community-based practice.

Additional information can be found on the ATTC National Office website regarding the nine blending teams and products that the ATTCs have been involved in creating under this initiative:
