Project: An Exploration of Peer Recovery Support Services Across State 
Behavioral Health Systems--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) 
is proposing a pilot study to obtain an overview of peer recovery 
services across state behavioral health systems. In an effort to 
support behavioral health systems' adoption and management of recovery 
oriented services, SAMHSA created the Bringing Recovery Supports to 
Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS). BRSS TACS is a 
mechanism for implementing SAMHSA's Recovery Support Strategic 
Initiative. A goal of this initiative is to understand the finance and 
quality assurance issues that impact the development of peer recovery 
personnel in the workforce and the services they deliver. A grasp of 
these complex issues can enable BRSS TACS to advance its work of 
supporting states by creating policy guidance on best practices for 
effectively deploying peer recovery support services in integrated 
healthcare delivery systems as mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
    The proposed pilot study will utilize a semi-structured interview 
questionnaire with state and organizational representatives from mental 
health and substance abuse agencies. Questions of interest include (1) 
an examination of how reimbursement of peer support services is linked 
to peer roles, delivery settings, and funding streams; (2) quality 
assurance issues such as credentialing and supervision of peer support 
personnel; (3) procedures for monitoring, evaluating, and sustaining 
peer support services; and (4) challenges of delivering peer recovery 
services in the era of Affordable Care Act.
    The representatives (n=40) from state and organizational agencies 
of mental health and substance abuse will represent a state from the 10 
public health regions. States are identified by SAMHSA subject matter 
experts and stakeholders who are familiar with the structure and 
function of peer recovery support services. The sampling recommended by 
SAMHSA experts and stakeholders is a selection of states that have a 
strong history of providing peer led services and have an active peer-
based organization.
    The total estimated respondent burden is 20 hours for the period 
from April 2014 through September 2014. Table 1 below indicates the 
annualized respondent burden estimate.
