Abstract: The Center for Social WorkResearch (CSWR) in the School of Social Work (SSW) at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) proposes a Social Work Research Development Program (SWRDP) focusing on ethnicity and psychosocial factors as they relate to strategies for improving drug abuse prevention and treatment (including treatment readiness/engagement, utilization, retention, and outcomes) for African Americans and Mexican Americans. The CSWR at UT proposes to build an infrastructure for drug abuse research in the SSW and to increase participation of UT social work faculty in interdisciplinary drug abuse research to improve the quality of interventions aimed at reducing drug abuse and addiction in the US, especially among African American and Mexican American children, adults, and families. The proposed SWRDP will consist of an administrative core designed to facilitate federally funded research and a research core designed to focus on ethnic and psychosocial factors that increase treatment utilization, retention, and outcomes. Two pilot projects on these topics are proposed to begin during year 1. Strategies to leverage current strengths of the CSWR and fill gaps in infrastructure for an enduring program of interdisciplinary drug abuse research include establishing a Multi-disciplinary Research Advisory Board, a Multi-disciplinary Steering Committee, and a Community/Consumer Liaison Committee………..
