The Contingency Management Initiative (CMI) will support activities to implement an evidence-based practice (EBP) that will be utilized in community-based outpatient (OP) substance use disorder (SUD) treatment programs statewide with special emphasis on jurisdictions with demonstrated need to help mitigate overdose and overdose deaths. Contingency Management often called motivational incentives is a type of behavioral therapy rooted in the basis of operant conditioning.
