Godley, Garner, Smith, Meyers, and Godley (2011) describe an intensive dissemination and implementation program for empirically supported substance use treatment in a community setting. Among the many procedures employed by this dissemination program is the integration of in-person and alternate learning modalities (web-based training.) The use of alternate learning modalities to aid treatment dissemination is relatively new, and much needs to be learned about how to best use these methodologies. Early research suggests that, at a minimum, these training aids may be an effective adjunct to more traditional approaches and potentially may become an invaluable tool for large-scale treatment dissemination.
