Overview

Today, most substance abuse treatment is administered by community-based organizations. If providers could readily incorporate the most recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of addiction and treatment, the treatment would be much more effective and efficient. The gap between research findings and everyday treatment practice represents an enormous missed opportunity at this exciting time in this field.
Informed by real-life experiences in addiction treatment including workshops and site visits, Bridging the Gap Between Practice and Research examines why research remains remote from treatment and makes specific recommendations to community providers, federal and state agencies, and other decisionmakers. The book outlines concrete strategies for building and disseminating knowledge about addiction; for linking research, policy development, and everyday treatment implementation; and for helping drug treatment consumers become more informed advocates.
In candid language, the committee discusses the policy barriers and the human attitudes--the stigma, suspicion, and skepticism--that often hinder progress in addiction treatment. The book identifies the obstacles to effective collaboration among the research, treatment, and policy sectors; evaluates models to address these barriers; and looks in detail at the issue from the perspective of the community-based provider and the researcher.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ozlem Dubauskas, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a description of the institute of medicine committee, its goals, process, findings, and recommendations about addiction treatment
Purpose: The purpose of the committee is to identify the gaps between research, treatment, and policy, to demonstrate the benefits of narrowing those gaps, and to provide models for collaborations.
Audience: Part of the targeted audience is federal, state, and local policymakers, drug treatment researchers, sponsors of research and treatment programs, managed care programs, professionals involved with employee assistance programs, behavioral health researchers, criminal justice and social welfare programs, and foundations interested in public health, education, and professional training. Community based treatment providers, behavioral health providers, and consumers may benefit as well. As a clinician, however, I do not feel that this book addresses practitioners or consumers. Still, it may be helpful to some of the other stated target groups.
Features: The book contains minimal graphs and illustrations. References are numerous and up-to-date. The large appendix is very informative and useful in moving beyond the basic material. The language used makes the book hard to read.
Assessment: This is a useful book to gain information about the possible methods of bridging community-based organizations and researchers as well as the possible difficulties of doing so. It is an important and well-organized book likely to benefit administrators the most.

The Committee on Community-Based Drug Treatment at the Institute of Medicine examines why research remains remote from treatment and describes approaches for closing this gap. This report examines the potential benefits and challenges confronting community-based providers and discusses these from the researcher's perspective. In addition, it presents models of successful collaboration and gives the committee's findings and recommendations. Various appendices make up half the book.
