SAMHSA Guidance for Implementation of Contingency Management Training and Technical Assistance

Product Developed by the Contingency Management Task Force (CM Task Force)

The Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network Coordinating Office (ATTC NCO) convened the Contingency Management Task Force (CM Task Force) in April 2023 at the request of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The purpose of this Contingency Management (CM) Task Force was to define the key components of CM that will facilitate consistent evidence-based training and implementation, and to scale CM in a manner that is meaningful, permissible, and scientific. The insights gathered will help SAMHSA’s [Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Centers] to offer technical guidance, resources, partnerships, and infrastructure to support the expansion of CM to stakeholders in the field of addiction and recovery. This initial meeting is crucial in developing a shared vocabulary and an evidence based approach to CM education and training platforms, with the goal of incorporating metrics to measure effectiveness.

Key information and components for facilitating CM TTA found in this report, include:

1. Key areas of considerations relating to implementation guidance (Section 2)
2. Recommendations pertaining to the development and rollout of implementation guidance (Section 3)
3. Proposed chapter titles and topics to be used in the possible development of a Contingency
Management Implementation Guidance Document (Section 4)
4. Publicly available resources (Section 5)
5. Selected references (Section 6)
