Welcome to the CTN Pacific NW Node Blog!

August 31, 2009

Welcome to the new Pacific Northwest Node Blog!!  A goal is to provide members of the Node with up to date information about CTN- and Node-related information, to help improve the quality and outcome of substance abuse treatment using science as the vehicle.  We have transitioned from a paper version of our previous newsletter, “The Bridge” to an online blog in order both to get information out to our affiliated researchers and practitioners in a more timely way, and to provide an opportunity for discussion and bi-directional sharing of ideas.  We hope that you find the information posted on the blog to be useful and that you will take the opportunity to contribute to it.
