CTBH has just received over $4M in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to improve the treatment of opioid addiction through its Helping to End Addition Long-term (HEAL) Initiative. This funding to CTBH will support “the translation of medical research on opioid addiction treatment to real-world practice,” according to the offices of Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan who recently announced awarding of this federal funding to New Hampshire. HEAL awards granted to CTBH will fund several Active Projects, including Emergency Department Outcomes for Patients with Opioid Use Disorder; Rural Expansion of Medication Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder; Expanding Clinical Research Training on Implementing the Evidence-based Hub and Spoke Model of Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder; Harnessing Digital Health Technologies and Analytics to Understand Clinical Trajectories of Individuals with Opioid Use Disorder in Buprenorphine Treatment; and Mindful Moms in Recovery (MMORE): Yoga-based Mindfulness Relapse Prevention for Pregnant Women with Opioid Disorder.
These awards from the NIH are part of a larger $945M federal initiative across 41 states to address the opioid crisis. Read more
