Abstract

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Substance Abuse Policy Research Program (SAPRP) supported 368 awards for nearly $60 million to complete policy research related to alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use and abuse. As part of its closure in 2009, SAPRP commissioned four papers that articulated policy research priorities for tobacco cessation and control, alcohol prevention, drug prevention, and addiction treatment. The papers were released at a Congressional Briefing on October 2, 2009 and are available on the SAPRP Web site (http://www.saprp.org/Research_Agenda.cfm). An abridged version of the treatment policy paper summarizes what we know, what we need to know, and research recommendations. The paper examines five categories of policy concerns that are likely to affect addiction treatment services over the next 5 years: (a) organization and delivery of care, (b) quality of care, (c) evidence-based practices, (d) access to care, and (e) financing, costs, and value of care.
