The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), (, has a long tradition of involving the community in its efforts to understand, reduce, prevent, and treat drug abuse and its adverse health and social consequences. Involving community partners and collaborators in drug abuse and HIV/AIDS research, for example, has informed NIDA's efforts to develop and implement culturally appropriate, community-based HIV/AIDS outreach interventions to avert the spread of new HIV infections among drug users, particularly in communities where health disparities exist. When drug abuse prevention and treatment programs are developed with the community's participation, the community becomes instrumental in their successful implementation and acceptance. Community-based participatory research has contributed to NIDA's mission to improve the effectiveness of drug abuse prevention and services programs in reaching persons at highest risk.

NIDA is interested in community-based, community level, and/or community participatory research on drug abuse, drug addiction, and drug-use related health and social consequences, and in the development of effective strategies to promote drug-free lifestyles, prevent drug abuse and its consequences, and eliminate health disparities. Studies are encouraged that examine:
