The I–SATS includes all substance abuse treatment facilities known to SAMHSA. The N–SSATS is an annual survey of all substance abuse treatment facilities listed in the I–SATS. The TEDS is a compilation of clientlevel admission data and discharge data submitted by States on clients treated in facilities that receive State funds. Together, the three DASIS components provide information on the location, scope and characteristics of all known drug and alcohol treatment facilities in the United States, the number of persons in treatment, and the characteristics of clients receiving services at publicly-funded facilities. This information is needed to assess the nature and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, to provide a database for treatment referrals, and to assess demographic and substancerelated trends in treatment.

The request for OMB approval includes a request to conduct the 2006 N–SSATS survey and the 2006 Mini-N– SSATS. The Mini-N–SSATS is a procedure for collecting services data from newly identified facilities between main cycles of the survey and will be used to improve the listing of treatment facilities in the on-line treatment facility Locator. The 2006 N–SSATS questionnaire will include several new items, including the addition of nicotine replacement therapy and psychiatric medications to the pharmacotherapies list and the addition of new services to the list of services provided. The request also includes a request to conduct a pretest of the 2007 N–SSATS questionnaire in 2006. The 2007 pretest questionnaire will include several changes, including the modification of the treatment categories to better reflect the practices and terminology currently used in the treatment field; modification of the detoxification question, including the addition of a follow-up question on whether the facility uses drugs in detoxification and for which substances; the addition of questions on treatment approaches and behavioral interventions; the addition of a question on quality control procedures used by the facility; and, the addition of a question on whether the facility accepts ATR vouchers and how many annual admissions were funded by ATR Number of respondents Type of respondent and activity States: TEDS Admission Data ..............................................................................

As part of this effort, SAMHSA is expanding and refining the agency’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) so that the system serves as a leading national resource for contemporary and reliable information on the scientific basis and practicality of interventions to prevent and/or treat PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2,878 1 1 1 1 1 .08 .17 .2 .08 .13 8 34 3,400 80 91 mental illness and substance use and abuse. NREPP represents a major agency activity within SAMHSA’s Science to Service initiative. The initiative seeks to accelerate the translation of research into practice by promoting the implementation of effective, evidencebased interventions for preventing and/ or treating mental disorders and substance use and abuse. Of equal measure, the initiative emphasizes the essential role of the services community in providing input and feedback to influence and better frame the research questions and activities pursued by researchers in these areas. Through SAMHSA’s Science to Service initiative, the agency ultimately seeks to develop a range of tools that will facilitate evidence-based decisionmaking in substance abuse prevention, mental health promotion, and the treatment of mental and substance use disorders. In addition to NREPP, SAMHSA is developing an informational guide of web-based E:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1

Drug and Alcohol Services Information System (DASIS) (OMB No. 0930-
0106)--Revision

    The DASIS consists of three related data systems: The Inventory of 
Substance Abuse Treatment Services (I-SATS); the National Survey of 
Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), and the Treatment Episode 
Data Set (TEDS). The I-SATS includes all substance abuse treatment 
facilities known to SAMHSA. The N-SSATS is an annual survey of all 
substance abuse treatment facilities listed in the I-SATS. The TEDS is 
a compilation of client-level admission data and discharge data 
submitted by States on clients treated in facilities that receive State 
funds. Together, the three DASIS components provide information on the 
location, scope and characteristics of all known drug and alcohol 
treatment facilities in the United States, the number of persons in 
treatment, and the characteristics of clients receiving services at 
publicly-funded facilities. This information is needed to assess the 
nature and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, to 
provide a database for treatment referrals, and to assess demographic 
and substance-related trends in treatment. In addition, SAMHSA and the 
State substance abuse officials participating in SAMHSA's December 2004 
meeting on National Outcome Measures (NOMS) agreed that several NOMS 
data elements to assess the performance of the Substance Abuse

Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant will be collected in TEDS.
    The request for OMB approval includes a request to conduct the 2006 
N-SSATS survey and the 2006 Mini-N-SSATS. The Mini-N-SSATS is a 
procedure for collecting services data from newly identified facilities 
between main cycles of the survey and will be used to improve the 
listing of treatment facilities in the on-line treatment facility 
Locator. The 2006 N-SSATS questionnaire will include several new items, 
including the addition of nicotine replacement therapy and psychiatric 
medications to the pharmacotherapies list and the addition of new 
services to the list of services provided. The request also includes a 
request to conduct a pretest of the 2007 N-SSATS questionnaire in 2006. 
The 2007 pretest questionnaire will include several changes, including 
the modification of the treatment categories to better reflect the 
practices and terminology currently used in the treatment field; 
modification of the detoxification question, including the addition of 
a follow-up question on whether the facility uses drugs in 
detoxification and for which substances; the addition of questions on 
treatment approaches and behavioral interventions; the addition of a 
question on quality control procedures used by the facility; and, the 
addition of a question on whether the facility accepts ATR vouchers and 
how many annual admissions were funded by ATR vouchers. Following the 
pretest of the 2007 N-SSATS, a separate request for OMB approval will 
be submitted for the 2007 and 2008 N-SSATS, including the Mini-N-SSATS 
for those years.
    The request for OMB approval will also include the addition of 
several new NOMS data elements to the TEDS client-level record. To the 
extent that states already collect the elements from their treatment 
providers, the following elements will be included in the TEDS data 
collection: Number of arrests at admission and at discharge; substances 
used/frequency of use at discharge; employment at discharge; and living 
arrangement at discharge.
