Experts at the Treatment Research Institute (TRI) are available to help states and local governments develop and evaluate evidence-based policies that foster delivery of state-of-the-science care – within existing budgets. Our goal is to help policy makers translate research into policy solutions that get quality results – and work with states and other purchasers to use their dollars more effectively and efficiently by doing business differently.
Through our research and policy programs, TRI offers guidance to state and federal governments about:
- Benefit Design and Performance-Based Purchasing
- Coordinated and Effective Management of Drug-Offenders
- Integration of Substance Use Prevention and Intervention in Medical Practice
- Improved Delivery and Ongoing Management of Substance Abuse Services
Additionally, TRI hosts a small collaborative group of policy-makers from several states through its Mutual Assistance Program for the States (MAPS). Through this program, TRI provides technical expertise, design, evaluation and support for innovative projects identified by the states to address the multifactorial needs of their substance using constituents.
