The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has an

active interest in the support of research projects addressing issues

of the effective matching of alcoholism patients to specific

treatments based on their individual characteristics.  In 1989, NIAAA

issued Requests for Applications (RFAs) for clinical research units,

and a coordinating center, respectively, for Cooperative Agreements

on Matching Patients to Alcoholism Treatments.  The first five years

of support for these awards will end in 1994.  The NIAAA intends to

extend this cooperative agreement program for an additional three

years and to limit competition to investigators from the current

clinical research units and the coordinating center.  This limitation

of eligibility is based on the current awardees' unique access to the

study population and data derived therefrom, and unique expertise

with respect to the assessment instruments developed specifically for

this study.

Although competition for this cooperative agreement study extension

is limited, NIAAA wishes to call attention to its ongoing program

announcement entitled "Research on Alcoholism Patient-Treatment

Matching" (PA-92-75) dated May 1992. Research grant applications are

encouraged under this program announcement without any limitation on



Additional information on either of these alcoholism treatment

matching research programs may be obtained from:
