Translational Research on Interventions for Adolescents in the Legal System: TRIALS (U01)
Grant Amount: Approximately $5 million in FY 2013 to fund 3-5 Research Centers and 1 Coordinating Center.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) invites applications for cooperative agreement participants (multiple Research Centers and one coordinating center) to collaborate in developing and testing implementation strategies and associated measures to improve the continuum of substance abuse prevention and treatment services delivered to youth under juvenile justice supervision. Awardees will develop and execute collaborative multisite studies across a variety of community-based supervision settings including juvenile probation, truancy and teen courts, and adolescent drug courts. Research undertaken by the cooperative is expected to contribute both to implementation science and to the effective delivery of evidence-based substance abuse interventions within real-world practice settings. These goals will be accomplished through the development and testing of measures and methods to support the successful implementation of substance abuse and HIV prevention and treatment services in juvenile justice settings.
The cooperative will carry out a program of research to (a) identify, develop, or refine a set of measures to assess existing services along with key organizational and environmental factors that may facilitate or impede the implementation of the services continuum; (b) deploy those measures in their partnering juvenile justice systems and service provider agencies; (c) based on the data obtained, design one or more multi-site implementation projects to address identified gaps in the services continuum; and (d) identify, develop, or refine a set of measures to systematically assess implementation outcomes.
It is not the objective of this cooperative to develop and test the clinical efficacy or effectiveness of discrete prevention or treatment interventions or services per se, although individual-level outcomes may be collected to demonstrate the reach or effectiveness of the tested implementation strategies. Effective screening, assessment, and prevention and treatment interventions already exist, and efforts under this research initiative should focus on developing measures and implementation strategies to facilitate the uptake of a comprehensive, evidence-based services continuum to address substance abuse and HIV needs of adolescents within the participating organizations and systems.
