Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Substance Abuse, Disability, and EmploymentThis RRTC builds on previous findings to positively impact persons with disabilities who also experience substance use disorders, as well as the service providers upon whom they depend. The highly integrated program of research addresses the following goals and objectives: (l) promote widespread use of substance use disorder screening among persons with disabilities who utilize disability-related employment services; (2) conduct a randomized clinical trial of a model of supported employment, Individualized Placement and Support (IPS), to test its efficacy among persons with traumatic brain injury or other severe disabilities that also have a substance use disorder; (3) research policy and practices relative to their impact on VR services for persons with a disability and coexisting substance abuse; and (4) investigate factors that specifically contribute to unsuccessful case closure among consumers of VR services.
