NAATP’s DEIB Best Practices in Addiction Treatment Model and Assessment Tool

The NAATP Stages of Change Model for DEIB Best Practices in Addiction Treatment Tool was created in consultation with our DEIB Advisory Council to help providers – both those just starting this work and those who are well on their way – to identify areas for growth, develop specific action steps, and gauge their progress. Just as treatment providers apply the Stages of Change Model in their work with patients, this model can help leaders chart a path to best practices. NAATP has developed a webinar as well as a blog to introduce this Tool and discuss its goals and utilization. NAATP is also providing a survey portal for individual leaders to submit their ratings on the tool confidentially. 

All-Staff DEIB Stages of Change Assessment Tool

NAATP has developed an All-Staff version of the DEIB Stage of Change Assessment, which can be used with any and all employees at an addiction or behavioral health organization to measure perspectives on equity and inclusion issues. The brief, 19-item survey, is publicly available and free to use in any organization that finds it useful in their work toward DEIB best practices. The survey can be completed online through NAATP’s All-Staff DEIB Survey Portal
