Effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for substance use disorders (SUD) demand an increasing array of evidence-based interventions to address individuals’ changing strengths, needs, and circumstances. This can be achieved via Adaptive Interventions, which explicitly guide how to modify the type/intensity of services based on information about the individual. Furthermore, advances in digital technologies, such as electronic health records (EHRs) and mobile devices, have created unprecedented opportunities to obtain data for use in adapting interventions at different time scales (e.g., monthly, many times a day) and levels (e.g., individual, clinic, health system). This workshop will provide an introduction to recent methodological advances for optimizing adaptive interventions for SUD. Specifically, we will introduce novel types of adaptive interventions and discuss new experimental designs for optimizing these adaptive interventions.
