NIDA Issues FOAs on HEALing Communities Study

September 24, 2018

On September 19, 2018, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) issued two funding opportunities for cooperative agreements to support components of the HEALing Communities Study – an integrated approach to test interventions for opioid misuse and addiction in communities hit hard by the opioid crisis. This study is a part of the recently launched NIH initiative, Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL), a trans-agency multi-part effort that uses science to bring hope for families and communities affected by the opioid crisis. NIH partnered with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to launch this study.  For more information on the funding opportunities, go to:

HEALing Communities Study: Developing and Testing an Integrated Approach to Address the Opioid Crisis (Data Coordinating Center) (Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

HEALing Communities Study: Developing and Testing an Integrated Approach to Address the Opioid Crisis (Research Sites) (Clinical Trial Required)

In addition, NIDA has published a blog, “The HEALing Communities Study: Using Science to Address the Opioid Crisis,”  by NIDA Director Dr. Nora Volkow and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins, on how this and other initiatives will stimulate scientific solutions to the opioid crisis.

For researchers interested in this funding opportunity, there will be a Technical Assistance Webinar on the HEALing Communities Study on October 3 at 1 p.m. EST.
