While the efficacy of contingency management is well established, most research on patient- and site-level characteristics come from clinical trials as opposed to real-world settings. Results from real-word implementation can increase the robustness of existing literature about contingency management. The specific aims of this project are to identify program-level variables associated with greater contingency management enrollment and patient-level factors associated with the utilization of contingency management for stimulant use disorders when contingency management is an available intervention.
