Project: National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N–SSATS) (OMB No. 0930–0106)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting a revision of the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment (N–SSATS) data collection VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Oct 07, 2015 Jkt 238001 (OMB No. 0930–0106), which expires on January 31, 2016. N–SSATS provides both national and state-level data on the numbers and types of patients treated and the characteristics of facilities providing substance abuse treatment services. It is conducted under the authority of Section 505 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa–4) to meet the specific mandates for annual information about public and private substance abuse treatment providers and the clients they serve. This request includes: • Collection of N–SSATS, which is an annual survey of substance abuse treatment facilities; and • Updating of the Inventory of Behavioral Health Services (I–BHS) which is the facility universe for the N– SSATS as well as the annual survey of mental health treatment facilities, the National Mental Health Services Survey (N–MHSS). The I–BHS includes all substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment facilities known to SAMHSA. (The N–MHSS data collection is covered under OMB No. 0930–0119.) The information in I–BHS and N– SSATS is needed to assess the nature and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, and to provide a database for treatment referrals. Both I– BHS and N–SSATS are components of the Behavioral Health Services Information System (BHSIS). The request for OMB approval will include a request to update the I–BHS facility listing on a continuous basis and to conduct the N–SSATS and the between cycle N–SSATS (N–SSATS BC) in 2016, 2017, and 2018. The N–SSATS BC 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 online Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator. Planned Changes I–BHS: No changes. N–SSATS: The N–SSATS with client counts will continue to be conducted in alternate years, as in the past with an alternate version of the N–SSATS PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 questionnaire that includes workforce questions as well as questions to update the Treatment Locator conducted in the interim years.

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) is requesting a revision of the National Survey of Substance 
Abuse Treatment (N-SSATS) data collection (OMB No. 0930-0106), which 
expires on January 31, 2016. N-SSATS provides both national and state-
level data on the numbers and types of patients treated and the 
characteristics of facilities providing substance abuse treatment 
services. It is conducted under the authority of Section 505 of the 
Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa-4) to meet the specific 
mandates for annual information about public and private substance 
abuse treatment providers and the clients they serve.
    This request includes:
     Collection of N-SSATS, which is an annual survey of 
substance abuse treatment facilities; and
     Updating of the Inventory of Behavioral Health Services 
(I-BHS) which is the facility universe for the N-SSATS as well as the 
annual survey of mental health treatment facilities, the National 
Mental Health Services Survey (N-MHSS). The I-BHS includes all 
substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment facilities known 
to SAMHSA. (The N-MHSS data collection is covered under OMB No. 0930-
0119.)
    The information in I-BHS and N-SSATS is needed to assess the nature 
and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, and to 
provide a database for treatment referrals. Both I-BHS and N-SSATS are 
components of the Behavioral Health Services Information System 
(BHSIS).
    The request for OMB approval will include a request to update the 
I-BHS facility listing on a continuous basis and to conduct the N-SSATS 
and the between cycle N-SSATS (N-SSATS BC) in 2016, 2017, and 2018. The 
N-SSATS BC 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 online 
Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator.

Planned Changes

    I-BHS: No changes.
    N-SSATS: The N-SSATS with client counts will continue to be 
conducted in alternate years, as in the past with an alternate version 
of the N-SSATS questionnaire that includes workforce questions as well 
as questions to update the Treatment Locator conducted in the interim 
years.

Version B (2016 and 2018)

    The workforce questions will be conducted in even years in place of
