Project: SAMHSA Recovery Measurement Pilot Study—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) is proposing a pilot test of its Recovery Measure. As part of its strategic initiative to support recovery from mental health and substance use disorders, SAMHSA has been working to develop a standard measure of recovery that can be used as part of its grantee performance reporting activities. This project will assess the usability and psychometric properties of the proposed tool among a voluntary group of 2–3 SAMHSA grantees. SAMHSA has developed a short 20-item instrument that has been designed to capture all four of SAMHSA’s proposed dimensions of recovery—health, home, purpose, and community. This measure is comprised of questions from the World Health Organization’s Quality of Life tool (WHO QOL 8) and SAMHSA’s existing set of Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures. Data will be collected at two time points—at client intake and at six-months postintake. These are two points in time during which SAMHSA grantees 600 5,000 4,000 1,000 2,000 12,600 0.08 0.167 0.167 0.167 0.167 .......................... 48 835 668 167 125 1,843 routinely collect data on the individuals participating in their programs. Approval of these items by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to further refine the Recovery Measure developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA’s set of required performance measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients receiving services from the Agency’s funded programs. Based on current funding and planned fiscal year 2014 notice of funding announcements the following SAMHSA grantee programs will be selected to participate in this pilot study: Behavioral Health Treatment Court Collaborative (BHTCC); Cooperative Agreements to Benefit Homeless Individuals (CABHI); and the Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI).

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. Methodological tests will continue to be designed to examine the feasibility, quality, and efficiency of new procedures or revisions to existing survey protocol. Specifically, the tests will measure the reliability and validity of certain questionnaire sections and items through multiple measurements on a set of respondents; assess new methods for gaining cooperation and participation of respondents with the goal of increasing response and decreasing potential bias in the survey estimates; and assess the impact of new sampling techniques and technologies on respondent behavior and reporting. Research will involve focus groups, cognitive laboratory testing, customer satisfaction surveys, and field tests. These methodological tests will continue to examine ways to increase data quality, lower operating costs, and gain a better understanding of sources and effects of nonsampling error on the NSDUH estimates. Particular attention will be given to minimizing the impact of design changes so that survey data continue to remain comparable over time. If these tests provide successful results, current procedures or data collection instruments may be revised. The number of respondents to be included in each field test will vary, depending on the nature of the subject being tested and the target population.

Project: SAMHSA Recovery Measurement Pilot Study--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) 
is proposing a pilot test of its Recovery Measure. As part of its 
strategic initiative to support recovery from mental health and 
substance use disorders, SAMHSA has been working to develop a standard 
measure of recovery that can be used as part of its grantee performance 
reporting activities.
    This project will assess the usability and psychometric properties 
of the proposed tool among a voluntary group of 2-3 SAMHSA grantees. 
SAMHSA has developed a short 20-item instrument that has been designed 
to capture all four of SAMHSA's proposed dimensions of recovery--
health, home, purpose, and community. This measure is comprised of 
questions from the World Health Organization's Quality of Life tool 
(WHO QOL 8) and SAMHSA's existing set of Government Performance and 
Results Act (GPRA) measures. Data will be collected at two time 
points--at client intake and at six-months post-intake. These are two 
points in time during which SAMHSA grantees routinely collect data on 
the individuals participating in their programs.
    Approval of these items by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) will allow SAMHSA to further refine the Recovery Measure 
developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the 
Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA's set of required performance 
measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients 
receiving services from the Agency's funded programs.

selected to participate in this pilot study: Behavioral Health 
Treatment Court Collaborative (BHTCC); Cooperative Agreements to

individuals at three different levels: The SAMHSA administrator and 
staff, the Center administrators and government project officers, and 
grantees.
    The total estimated respondent burden is 60 hours for the period 
from September 2014 through March 2015. Table 1 below indicates the 
annualized respondent burden estimate.
