Use of Advanced Computer Analytics to Research Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Researcher(s): (Jeanne Bilanin)


Through a seed grant from the University of Maryland Division of Research, IGSR and University of Maryland’s Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS) are exploring the use of next generation computer analytic methods to study outcomes of substance use disorder treatment. This in-depth retrospective analysis employs an existing database of client treatment records in the State of Maryland Automated Tracking (SMART) system and enables researchers to examine how multiple client and treatment variables affect the outcome of therapy. The project will test the use of cutting-edge computer analytic tools to gain insights regarding treatment of heroin addiction.
