The PRISM (Promoting Research Initiatives in Substance Use and Mental Health) Collaborative was established to address disparities in substance use disorder and mental health treatment. Our mission is to develop, test, implement, and disseminate interventions to improve the lives of individuals living with substance use and mental health disorders in their communities.  

Our team has developed extensive training materials to provide both the background, skills, and supports needed to conduct an-evidence based Contingency Management (CM) intervention for substance use disorders.
