Understanding context and including sufficiently detailed discussions of it are essential to a balanced presentation. The articles on AOT in this issue explain this context well and allow for a consideration of how positive findings are bounded by the context in which they are found. That is, some things "work" but the reasons may be related to certain elements of context, in addition to or in lieu of the effect of the intervention in question. For example, Swanson and colleagues' analysis of concerns about "queue jumping" provide context about the implementation of AOT and how it is related to service access. The meaningful role of regional differences in the use of AOT is explored by Robbins and colleagues and included in the analyses presented in all the articles in the special section. And, as the authors indicate, these findings are specifically from New York State, where passage of the AOT law was accompanied by substantial new treatment resources, which may limit the generalizability of these encouraging findings.
