Loughran, Hilda (2003) Teaching evidence-based addiction practice: project MATCH comes to the classroom. Journal of Teaching in the Addictions , 2 , (1) , pp. 1-15.

This article describes a teaching model used in two sites (Dublin, Ireland, and San Diego) to train students in different methods of substance abuse treatment. Addiction Studies students and graduate social work students received treatment manuals that were used in Project MATCH study, three methods of treatment were used: Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational Enhancement, and Twelve-Step Facilitation. The manuals describe each intervention, which the students adapted to a group setting. Students presented and then role-played each method, demonstrating the various elements of each model. Results of Project MATCH were then discussed. Students reported surprise at the level of sophistication in substance abuse treatment, and a recognition of the connection between research and practice.
