- Institution: University of Kentucky | PI: Bunn, Terry
Evaluation of Kentucky Access to Recovery Linkage Strategy
- The University of Kentucky proposes to perform a rigorous process and outcome evaluation of the Kentucky Access to Recover strategy, a “last resort” voucher strategy for linking county residents at or below the 200% national poverty level who have illicit substance use disorder and are in treatment or early recovery to evidence-based recovery support services such as recovery housing.

- The University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester proposes to conduct an innovative Hybrid Type 1 randomized controlled trial (RCT) of a comprehensive linkage and wrap-around intervention.
- Institution: Rhode Island Hospital | PI: Samuels, Elizabeth
Emergency department community health worker-peer recovery navigation for linkage to recovery: A mixed methods evaluation
- Rhode Island Hospital proposes to conduct a pragmatic mixed-methods study of an established emergency department community health worker-peer recovery specialist program to evaluate program delivery, linkage to evidence-based recovery services, and short- and long-term patient outcomes.

- Institution: Johns Hopkins University | PI: German, Danielle
Mixed methods study of polysubstance use to optimize overdose prevention
- The Johns Hopkins University proposes to conduct a multi-phase mixed methods study to examine patterns, trajectories, and risk and protective factors for polydrug use (PDU) and overdose among people with various patterns of stimulant and opioids use.
