Article Excerpt: Based on their prodigious work, CTBH has developed a strong reputation among researchers and service providers as a mentor and leader in developing, evaluating, and implementing these technology-based therapeutic tools.
And this summer the center received a five-year $6.8 million renewal grant award from NIDA to continue its work, which is quite an achievement. This highly competitive renewal award was granted to continue support of CTBH due to its marked impact to date on the science and the practice of digital health, as well as its promise for helping to change the future of medicine. With this renewal grant, CTBH is able to further direct its research efforts in answering new scientific questions regarding real-world implementation of technology-assisted intervention models for SUD and mental health treatment and related behavioral health issues.
