The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. While NSDUH must be updated periodically to reflect changing substance use and mental health issues and to continue producing current data, for the 2018 NSDUH only the following minor changes are planned: (1) At the request of ONDCP, re-inserted the marijuana marketplace module, previously included in the 2014 NSDUH (as well as prior years), into the respondent-administered portion of the 2018 questionnaire; (2) the addition of four new questions, asked only of respondents age 18 and older, about the perception of problems with and recovery from drug/alcohol and mental health problems; and (3) included other minor wording changes to improve the flow of the interview, increase respondent comprehension or to be consistent with text in other questions. The marijuana marketplace module consists of a series of questions that seek to gather data such as the location, quantity, cost and type of marijuana being purchased across the nation. This module is unchanged from the version last included in the 2014 NSDUH. As with all NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2018 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Prior to 2002, the NSDUH was referred to as the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA). The total annual burden estimate is shown below.

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. PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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. E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1

or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of

utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the

Proposed Project: 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (OMB No. 
0930-0110)--Revision

    The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of 
the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population aged 12 years old 
or older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of 
tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of 
prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, the Office of 
National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), federal government agencies, and 
other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program 
activities, and better allocate resources.
    While NSDUH must be updated periodically to reflect changing 
substance use and mental health issues and to continue producing 
current data, for the 2018 NSDUH only the following minor changes are 
planned: (1) At the request of ONDCP, re-inserted the marijuana 
marketplace module, previously included in the 2014 NSDUH (as well as 
prior years), into the respondent-administered portion of the 2018 
questionnaire; (2) the addition of four new questions, asked only of 
respondents age 18 and older, about the perception of problems with and 
recovery from drug/alcohol and mental health problems; and (3) included 
other minor wording changes to improve the flow of the interview, 
increase respondent comprehension or to be consistent with text in 
other questions.
    The marijuana marketplace module consists of a series of questions 
that seek to gather data such as the location, quantity, cost and type 
of marijuana being purchased across the nation. This module is 
unchanged from the version last included in the 2014 NSDUH. As with all 
NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey 
for 2018 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of 
the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Prior to 2002, the NSDUH 
was referred to as the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA).
    The total annual burden estimate is shown below.
