Proposed Project: State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis (Opioid STR) Evaluation—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) plans to award up to 59 grants to states and territories to help address the national opioid crisis by increasing access to treatment, reducing unmet treatment needs, and reducing opioid overdose related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD). SAMHSA’s Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) will be conducting a cross-site evaluation of the Opioid STR grant program. The proposed data collection is necessary to evaluate how the Opioid STR state/territory grantees plan and implement prevention, treatment and recovery services. Additionally, a subset of communities/programs will be selected to participate in supplemental evaluation activities designed to provide detailed information related to the implementation of services at the program/community level, as well as the impacts of the program on client outcomes. SAMHSA has developed a set of interview protocols and survey measures that will collect information from all state/territory grantees (up to 59), and subset (up to 20) programs/ communities that provide services and activities funded by the grant. In addition, SAMHSA’s Performance Accountability and Reporting System (SPARS) will be used to collect individual-level data using CSAT’s Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) for Discretionary Grant Programs Client Outcome Measure (OMB No. 0930–0208) from individuals receiving services from participating communities/programs.

Proposed Project: State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis (Opioid 
STR) Evaluation--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) plans to award up to 59 grants to states and territories to 
help address the national opioid crisis by increasing access to 
treatment, reducing unmet treatment needs, and reducing opioid overdose 
related deaths through the provision of prevention, treatment, and 
recovery activities for opioid use disorder (OUD).
    SAMHSA's Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality 
(CBHSQ) will be conducting a cross-site evaluation of the Opioid STR 
grant program. The proposed data collection is necessary to evaluate 
how the Opioid STR state/territory grantees plan and implement 
prevention, treatment and recovery services. Additionally, a subset of 
communities/programs will be selected to participate in supplemental 
evaluation activities designed to provide detailed information related 
to the implementation of services at the program/community level, as 
well as the impacts of the program on client outcomes.
    SAMHSA has developed a set of interview protocols and survey 
measures that will collect information from all state/territory 
grantees (up to 59), and subset (up to 20) programs/communities that 
provide services and activities funded by the grant. In addition, 
SAMHSA's Performance Accountability and Reporting System (SPARS) will 
be used to collect individual-level data using CSAT's Government 
Performance and Results Act (GPRA) for Discretionary Grant Programs 
Client Outcome Measure (OMB No. 0930-0208) from individuals receiving 
services from participating communities/programs.
    Specific data collected as part of the Opioid STR evaluation 
include the following:
    State Survey: The State Survey will be administered to State 
Project Directors/Program Managers to collect information about the 
state/territory's planned and implemented activities to address opioid 
misuse, using Opioid STR funding. The State Survey will be administered 
three (3) times, in September/October 2017, March/April 2018, and 
March/April 2019.
    Community/Program Survey: The Community/Program Survey will be 
administered to Community/Program Directors or Program Managers to 
collect information about the community/program's readiness to 
implement activities that address opioid misuse, their actual 
implementation of activities that address opioid misuse, and initial 
outcomes of their implemented activities. The Community/Program Survey 
will be administered three (3) times, in September/October 2017, March/
April 2018, and March/April 2019.
    Community/Program Interview Protocol: The Community/Program 
Interview Protocol will be used with up to two (2) Community/Program 
Directors or Program Managers during in-person site visits to each 
participating community/program. Interviews will collect in-depth 
information about the community's/program's implementation of 
activities to address opioid misuse, using Opioid STR funding.
    CSAT GPRA Client Outcome Measure: The CSAT GPRA Client Outcome 
Measure will be used with each client served in the Communities/
Programs to collect data about client's progress as a result of 
receiving services. This data will be collected at three time 
intervals: intake to services, 6 month follow-up, and at discharge.
