Centerstone Research Institute (CRI) is a nonprofit organization which exists to improve the quality and effectiveness of care for individuals and families facing behavioral health disorders. Research shows an alarming 13–17 year delay between significant treatment breakthroughs and the standard use of those treatments in clinical settings. This means that a young person diagnosed with depression may have to suffer for 15 years before receiving a life-saving treatment already known today. CRI aims to bridge this gap between science and service, so the 33 million Americans seeking help for behavioral health and addiction disorders receive the best care possible. Partnering with clinicians and other research professionals in academia and industry, CRI provides research, analytics and evaluation services. CRI’s efforts – including the development of Enlighten Analytics™, an advanced business intelligence tool – are funded through contracts, grants, foundations and individual donors who share our commitment to bridging the gap between science and service. Together with partners, donors, clients and their families, CRI is advancing behavioral healthcare and recovery. www.centerstone.org/research
