The purpose of this program is to provide funding to states/territories/tribes to improve treatment for adolescents and transitional aged youth through the development of a learning laboratory with collaborating local community-based treatment provider sites. Through the shared experience between the state/territory/tribe and the local community-based treatment provider sites, an evidence-based practice (EBP) will be implemented, adolescents, transitional aged youth, and their families/primary caregivers will be provided services, and a feedback loop will be developed to enable the state/territory/tribe and the sites to identify barriers and test solutions through a services component operating in real time.
