Substance Use, Motivation, Medication and Integrated Treatment (SUMMIT) was a research study funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse that looked ways to implement medication-assisted and behavioral treatment for patients with opioid and alcohol use disorders in a community health clinic. The project helped the clinic implement universal screening, brief intervention procedures, and treatment and evaluated whether a collaborative care intervention helped patients get the care they needed. SUMMIT Study Protocol: Step-by-Step Procedures for Providing Screening, Brief Intervention, and Treatment Services to Primary Care Patients with Opioid or Alcohol Use Disorders is a revised version of the integrated collaborative care (ICC) protocol implemented at Venice Family Clinic during the SUMMIT research study. This manual may be useful for researchers looking to study implementation of ICC for opioid or alcohol use disorder (OAUD) treatment in primary care, primary care clinics interested in implementing ICC to support OAUD treatment, or policymakers seeking to better understand service delivery models for providing OAUD treatment in primary care settings. The introduction provides a general overview of the study for readers; the remainder of the manual is presented in the step-by-step instructional format in which it was used during the study.

The handouts presented in the manual are available to download in English and in Spanish.
