NIDA Blending Initiative

The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) Blending Initiative emerges as a collaborative agreement between NIDA and the Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The initiative was created with the purpose of transferring research to practice, incorporating scientific evidence-based models to treatments available to the community.
