Clinical Trials Network (CTN) Big South West Node

About the NIDA Clinical Trials Network


The NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) provides an enterprise in which NIDA, treatment researchers, and community-based service providers work toward new treatment options in community-level clinical practices. The primary goal is bridging the gap between the science of treatment for substance use disorders and its practice through the study of scientifically based interventions in real-world settings.
