                                                                          Page 2 of 65
                                    Introduction

        The NIDA/SAMHSA-ATTC Blending Initiative was developed in 2001 with the
goal of melding science and practice together to improve treatment for substance use
disorders. The first years of the project focused on the work of "Blending Teams"
comprised of staff from SAMHSA/CSAT's Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC)
Network and researchers and community treatment providers from NIDA's Clinical Trials
Network (CTN). NIDA and CSAT originally convened five separate Blending Teams to
develop products that would facilitate the dissemination of research results identified by
NIDA as follows: Buprenorphine Treatment: A Training for Multidisciplinary Addiction
Professionals (Buprenorphine Treatment), Treatment Planning MATRS: Utilizing the
Addiction Severity Index (ASI) to Make Data Collection Useful (Treatment Planning),
Motivational Interviewing Assessment: Supervisory Tools for Enhancing Proficiency
(MIA: STEP), Short-Term Opioid Withdrawal Using Buprenorphine: Findings and
Strategies from a NIDA Clinical Trials Network Study (Buprenorphine Detoxification)
and Promoting Awareness of Motivational Incentives (PAMI). All ATTC Regional
Centers participated on one of the five Blending Teams. Although the National Office
was not directly a part of any Blending Team, as the coordinating center of the ATTC
Network, it facilitated the efforts of all five Blending Teams and continues to develop
special projects, such as The Training Point, which support the Initiative as a whole.
        All five original Blending Teams currently have products in dissemination. One
Team, Treatment Planning MATRS, has spawned a sequel that will supplement the
original package by including information and resources on the ASI Treatment Planning
Software. A new Blending Team related to Buprenorphine/Naloxone-Facilitated
Rehabilitation for Heroin Addicted Adolescents/Young Adults held its first “hand-off”
meeting in February 2008. Plans for content are still under development; however it is
likely that the Team will be assigned to revise the existing Buprenorphine Awareness
product to include a module on using buprenorphine with young adults, as well as
updating all citations and other information that may have changed since the product
was developed in 2005. In addition, ATTC staff has been working with NIDA on its
Blending Initiative task force, and, in this capacity, have supported the development of a
guide for selecting, evaluating, and utilizing evidence-based practices.

   Pre-training/Infrastructure Development Events/Activities
The ATTC Network has found the need to prime the field on the evidence based
practices presented in the Blending packages before actually disseminating the official
products. This pre-training/infrastructure development work involves activities such as
meetings with SSAs, community treatment programs and other key stakeholders,
marketing efforts and product dissemination, foundational trainings, environmental
scans and other needs assessments, and overview presentations. From January
through March 2008, the ATTC Network reported holding 10 meetings, 5 conferences, 6
technical assistance events, 9 educational events (trainings or academic courses), one
product dissemination effort, and 2 regional planning calls related to pre-Blending
product training activities. These efforts are displayed on the map on page 4 and are
listed in detail in Appendix A.

                     Official Blending Product Trainings
        Once Blending Teams fully complete the development of their packages and receive
final approval from NIDA and SAMHSA, they begin disseminating their packages to the
public. All five original Teams now have products in dissemination. ATTC Regional Centers
work closely with key stakeholders to find opportunities to deliver trainings on Blending
products across the nation. During this reporting period, ATTCs held 36 official Blending
product events. There were no training-of-trainer events and no pilot events held. In
addition, the ATTCs did not hold any events in conjunction with CTNs during the quarter.
Please see the table on page 7 for a summary of the official trainings held, the number of
contact hours they represent, and the number of participants served. These efforts are also
displayed on the map on page 8 and are listed in detail in Appendix B.
        Several Regional Centers have encountered challenges to delivering one or more of
the Blending product trainings in certain states. In such cases, the ATTC has developed
innovative and creative strategies to overcome barriers and implement the trainings. See the
individual ATTC reports found later in this document for more details regarding challenges
and strategies taken to overcome them.

                       Post-training/Follow-up Activities

        Research is constantly contributing new knowledge to the substance use disorder and
recovery services field. Yet this new knowledge often is not used in service settings.
Implementing changes based on research can be difficult for treatment agencies and
professionals. Technology transfer involves creating a mechanism by which a desired
change is accepted, incorporated and reinforced at all levels of an organization or system.
Although training is one strategy in the technology transfer “tool box,” technology transfer’s
scope is much broader than training alone.
        The ATTC Network is specifically charged with accelerating the pace of research to
practice by elevating the capacity of the substance abuse treatment workforce to understand
and adopt cutting edge treatment practices that provide sound and effective treatments for
individuals suffering from addiction. The Network’s vision is to “unify science, education and
services to transform lives.” Technology transfer is at the heart of all ATTC work.
        The ATTC Network utilizes its expertise in technology transfer to extend the reach of
the Blending Initiative by re-packaging the approved information and materials in creative and
innovative ways. ATTC Regional Centers create products to supplement and enhance the
Blending products and conduct follow-up activities and ongoing technical assistance with
participants of Blending product trainings to increase the likelihood that research-based
practices will be implemented. Follow-up activities for this reporting period are displayed on
the map on page 10 and are listed in detail in Appendix C.

Not currently involved in an active Blending Team.

(2) Challenges and Strategies Taken
a. The state agencies, community-based organizations (CBOs), and private service
contractors in Puerto Rico and United States Virgin Islands have limited knowledge about
evidence-based approaches to treat drug addiction. In order to conduct related educational
events an extensive infrastructure development is required to persuade and influence
providers to develop skills, gain additional knowledge, and change attitudes. The activities
during this pre-implementation phase include orientation to agencies and CBOs
administrators, coordination (logistic process) and identification of potential training
participants.
b. The Caribbean Basin & Hispanic ATTC uses e-mail communications, faxes, telephone
calls and face to face encounters as strategies to disseminate information regarding BT
products among governmental agencies, CBOs, and private service contractors. In that way,
CHATTC addresses the lack of information about BT products on a continuous basis. The
table below presents additional challenges identified during this reporting period and actions
taken to overcome them.

None during this quarter.

(4) Development of Ancillary Products
As a regional ATTC member of the former ASI Blending Team, Gulf Coast ATTC along with
the other two ATTC Regional Centers have agreed to produce 3,000 CDs that would include
the DENS Software and two user manuals produced by Deni Carise. The entire M.A.T.R.S.
estimated cost for producing the new CDs would be about $6,000 with each of the three
ATTCs contributing $2,000 of its NIDA supplement funds. The CD will be packaged into an
attractive tri-fold cover/case similar to the packaging for the Blending Product sets that
NIDA produced in 2007. The team proposes that the 3,000 CDs be distributed among NIDA,
CSAT, and the ATTC Regional Centers and National Office, with the CD available on the
ATTC Network site under the Blending Initiative. Awaiting approval from NIDA and CSAT for
this plan.

 The ATTC National Office is coordinating the redesign, reproduction, bulk purchase, and
    distribution of a PAMI Blending Initiative product on behalf of the ATTC Network. The
    updated product will consist of a presentation folder, a CD-ROM, and a PAMI overview
    insert that describes “Promoting Awareness of Motivational Incentives.” The National
    Office received orders from the Regional Centers, and ordered 3400 PAMI folders at
    $4/piece, which are scheduled for delivery to the Regional Centers during April 2008.
 The ATTC National Office is coordinating the reproduction, bulk purchase, and distribution
    of nearly 1800 of the NIDA Blending CD Kits, originally produced by NIDA. The Blending
    CD kit, which will cost between $12-$15/piece, consists of five CDs and inserts that
    contain presentations on each of the five blending products. The CD has been in
    production since February and is scheduled to be delivered to Regional Centers, CSAT
    and NIDA during May 2008.

     On January 18th, Dr. Flaherty began a series of bi-weekly phone meetings with the
      Pennsylvania Department of Health, Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs and PA
      Department of Public Welfare, Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services to
      set mechanisms in place for PA’s new policies to implement Buprenorphine in
      Pennsylvania. The NeATTC worked with the State Department of Health for two years to
      get the new regulations advanced (non-residential facility use of Buprenorphine) that were
      enacted on 12/24/07.
     The NeATTC continued its work to design and conduct a best practice training for
      physicians and those in opiate assessment and treatment entitled, “Patient Safety in
      Opioid Addiction Treatment” scheduled in Harrisburg, Friday, May 16th, 2008. This day
      long session, which includes one section on Buprenorphine, has gained the attention of
      SAMHSA/CSAT and will be attended by MD’s from two states as well as video taped.
      Plans are to use this as a basis for a training curriculum.
     The NeATTC piloted a needs assessment tool with individuals who attended a Regional
      Training Institute on March 19th, 2008 PA Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs. There
      were 34 respondents who indicated poor familiarity with the NIDA Blending Products.
      These respondents also indicated there was a strong interest in learning about these
      products. NeATTC will develop and implement a comprehensive regional needs
      assessment, then use this plan as the basis for the development of a marketing strategy
      to disseminate the NIDA Blending Products.

   On February 13th, 2008 Eric Hulsey participated in a teleconference as NeATTC liaison to
    the Motivational Incentives Workgroup for NIDA Research Utilization Committee (RUC).
   In March 2008, Eric Hulsey interviewed RUC representatives from Pacific Northwest and
    Appalachian Tri-state Nodes to assess Node activities with regard to Motivational
    Incentives, current CTP interests in implementing MI and potential needs and barriers.
   Monthly contact with our 4 NIDA CTN nodes through distribution of NeATTC electronic
    newsletter, “Resource Links.”
   Throughout this period the NeATTC has been marketing the upcoming NIDA Blending.
    Conference scheduled for June 1,2 and 3 in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have provided all
    mailing lists for our region and sent out many electronic and other announcements
    including the use of the NeATTC Web site.

(4) Development of Ancillary Products
 NeATTC is currently in collaborating with GLATTC to explore the development of an
    online PAMI training and online discussion forum. The online PAMI training would provide
    an additional opportunity to promote dissemination. The development of an online
    discussion forum grew from a teleconference with the Motivational Incentives Workgroup
    for NIDA RUC. Members were interested in making available a resource and creating a
    community for CTPs and others who were attempting implementation of projects including
    Motivational Incentives. This moderated forum would provide an opportunity for
    implementation sites to share experiences and information, supporting adoption of MI.

Buprenorphine Awareness
     a. Challenge: Buprenorphine Awareness, despite offers to each SSA and CTN Node,
        has not been requested.
     b. Strategy: Seek to present day-long workshops conjointly with provider networks in
        each of the states in the NW-Pacific service area. Considering a survey of
        physicians currently approved to prescribe buprenorphine to seek
        recommendations for prospective audience and venues to provide workshops.

Treatment Planning M.A.T.R.S.
       a. NFATTC has offered this course to the SSAs in Oregon and Washington. Both
          State offices have declined participating or promoting Treatment Planning
          M.A.T.R.S. training due primarily to the fact that their States do not use the ASI.

                                                   January – March 2008 ATTC Quarterly Report

            We have explained that the training really is intended to introduce people to the
            benefits of a standardized assessment (using the ASI as an example and
            platform) for guiding treatment planning and the training focuses on developing
            individualized treatment plans, however this explanation hasn’t persuaded them
            to support this training.
         b. Treatment Planning M.A.T.R.S. trainings have been scheduled as free-standing
            events marketed solely through NFATTC in Oregon and Washington.
         c. Successes: The State of Hawaii SSA does mandate the use of the ASI for all of
            its contracted treatment providers and it is incorporating the ASI into its new data
            management system. The SSA office has asked NFATTC to provide Treatment
            Planning M.A.T.R.S. to several regions and agencies in the Hawai`i and to extend
            the training to a (2)-day workshop to allow for case study practice. The Hawai’i
            SSA is also looking at writing annual participation in this training into its contracts.
            Hawaii would like to contact Deni Carise and explore the possibility of
            incorporating the DENS software and treatment planning software into its data
            management system.

Motivational Interviewing Assessment: Supervisory Tools for Enhancing Proficiency
(MIA-STEP)
   a. The prerequisites necessary for Clinical Supervisors to attend MIA-STEP include
      significant preparatory work prior to scheduling and marketing the training to ensure
      participants will be able to utilize the toolkit and implement the supervision model in
      their agencies. Also, there are several communities in our Region that have not had
      sufficient basic and/or advanced Motivational Interviewing training to be able to attend
      MIA-STEP. The target audience for this training is also fairly small in some of our
      States with small overall population and a limited number of treatment agencies.

   b. NFATTC has organized and supported monthly planning calls with the 8 MIA-STEP
      trainers in our Region to collaborate on a Regional Plan for dissemination of this
      product. These trainers as well as several NFATTC staff have done “mini” needs
      assessments in several of the major cities in our region to determine which cities have
      sufficiently trained Clinical Supervisors to offer MIA-STEP in those locations.

Not currently involved in an active Blending Team.

(2)    Challenges and Strategies Taken

Southeast ATTC has conducted four official Blending trainings this quarter throughout the
region (See NIDA Blending Training tracking system). Since the Southeast ATTC took on a
new state during the new grant cycle, we were concerned about the need for infrastructure
development in NC; however, we are pleased to report that NC is equipped with Blending
Product trainers experienced with the Blending initiative and therefore we were able to “hit
the ground running” with Blending Trainings, especially the PAMI product. In order to have
successful NIDA Blending trainings in SC we have had to rely on donated space, such as
church buildings, to lower our training costs to be able to offer free trainings to front line staff.
In Georgia the new SSA (O. Salim) has been very supportive of the Southeast ATTC
conducting NIDA Blending trainings. The GA state office is also receptive to having Blending
trainings conducted at the GA state school next August. In fact, all three SSAs from GA, SC,
and NC have been very supportive of the Southeast ATTC’s initiative in offering free or low
cost NIDA Blending trainings in each state.

Another minor challenge has been developing and retaining high quality Blending Product
trainers. To that end Southeast ATTC has nominated several trainers in recent months, and
now has two trainers scheduled to attend the PAMI TOT in June, and one individual accepted
to MIA:STEP training also held in June. This will increase our number of official Blending
Trainers from the Southeast region from six to nine (which covers all five of the official
Blending team products).

(3)    Liaison Activities with CTN Nodes; CTPs; and /or NIDA Researchers
       a. Throughout the quarter the SC Program Consultant Robert Stephens has kept
          contact regularly (phone calls, emails) with MUSC CTN staff regarding projects,
          trainings and initiatives. Specifically, SATTC has been working with CTN staff on a
          subcommittee of the SC Addictions School, working this quarter to co-sponsor a
          track at the SC School, to be held in July 21-24, 2008. The track will be led by a
          physician (TBN) on the topic of “pharmacological interventions” and will target front
          line addictions counselors.
       b. The PAMI training held on 3/19 in South Carolina was sponsored in part by the
          MUSC CTN (Trainer Therese Killen is part of the MUSC CTN).

(4) Development of Ancillary Products
