The following training manual focuses on how to effectively implement Contingency Management (CM) in various clinical environments. The manual is largely informed by two studies in Alberta, Canada—CRISM Project Engage and The PRISE Project (PRoviding Incentives to Sustain Engagement).

Project Engage involved uncontrolled prospective trials at four study sites delivering substance use treatment, two inpatient settings and two outpatient settings. The trials examined whether CM
was helpful in promoting treatment related goals (e.g., creative arts), abstinence, and treatment attendance among individuals with substance use concerns.

The PRISE Project, a clinical trial, examined whether CM was helpful in encouraging treatment attendance among individuals seeking treatment for their substance use concerns at two outpatient addiction and mental health clinics.

Project Engage and The PRISE Project were pragmatically informative when it comes understanding the nuances and challenges of implementing CM in various clinical settings where the structure of treatment programs varies widely (e.g., different treatment schedules, inpatient and outpatient, in-person or virtual).

The manual also contains links to training videos.
