The College of Social Work (CoSW) is pleased to announce that Dr. Christina Andrews' project entitled “Addiction Treatment Medicaid Health Home” recently received funding for a distinguished Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (called a "K01"), funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

The purpose of the K01 award is to provide support and “protected time” (three, four, or five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. For the next five years, Dr. Andrews will assess the impact of health homes on enrollment of eligible Medicaid beneficiaries who need addiction treatment, as well as the use and costs of addiction treatment and acute care for addiction-related conditions.

The Co-PIs for the project are John Brooks and Dr. Janice Probst, both from UofSC Health Services Policy and Management.

The UofSC has been awarded a total of seven K01 awards, and the CoSW has received two of these prestigious awards. Dr. Nikki Wooten also currently has a K01 award for a project entitled “Behavioral Health Care in Army Warrior Transition Units.”
