This was a randomized, controlled trial in which 507 participants in outpatient treatment for substance use disorders were recruited from ten sites to participate in a study comparing 1) treatment as usual (TAU) to 2) a modification of TAU, which included access to the Therapeutic Education System (TES), a computerized psychosocial intervention which combines skill building modules based on the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) with incentives contingent upon abstinence from drugs and completion of TES modules.
