Incentivizing Recovery: Payment, Policy, and Implementation of Contingency Management

12:00p.m. – 3:00p.m. ET January 19, 2024 Virtual Event

Invitation Only

Contingency management (CM) is a proven and promising treatment for certain substance use disorders, especially stimulant use disorder. However, major gaps in knowledge regarding the economic, conceptual, policy, political and legal barriers have prevented widespread implementation. Important considerations such as equity and adaptations to the current substance use treatment environment have yet to be fully explored.

In this half-day conference, we will 1) critically explore the current state of contingency management (CM) from detailed economic and policy perspectives.; 2) consider payment and policy options that may foster the adoption of CM; 3) and discuss steps key decision makers in policy, health system and clinical areas can take to implement CM, promoting treatment equity, economic efficiency, recovery and public health.

The Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV (CHERISH) is a multi-institutional Center of Excellence, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. CHERISH is a collaborative effort among Penn LDI/University of Pennsylvania, Weill Cornell Medicine, Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Public Health, and University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
