The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) last week added the practice commonly known as assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) to the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
AOT has been at the center of CMHNetwork dialogues over the past year. One of our dialogue participants, Brian Stettin, led a successful effort on behalf of the Treatment Advocacy Center to get AOT added to NREPP. With the addition of AOT to the national registry, the opportunity exists for researchers to help define the "T" in AOT. We will be watching and writing about how this newest addition to NREPP begins to take shape.
