In 2013, in a single-day count, 1.25 million persons in the United States were enrolled in substance use treatment—an increase from 1.18 million persons in 2009.

NAATP Outcomes Pilot Program

NAATP's Outcomes Pilot Program (OPP) is a new research program that will measure the efficacy of addiction treatment using comprehensive national data. It will track patient outcomes from multiple residential and outpatient addiction treatment programs.

The pilot program will be conducted by NAATP, together with the research firm OMNI Institute and will provide unique cross-program comparison, compilation, and analysis.

The OPP research team will collect a large data sample of over 1,000 patients, following outcomes from baseline to discharge and at five time points for one year after discharge from treatment.

Key Outcome Influences

Outcome influences will be measured including:

  • Detoxification process
  • Patient engagement
  • Medication
  • Psychological and psychiatric care
  • Education and addiction counseling received
  • Peer and family support
  • Economics
  • Twelve step activity

An initial draft of the study is expected in the second quarter of 2017.

Addiction Treatment Benchmarks

The data, derived from the instrument created by Norman Hoffman, Ph.D., will provide benchmarks for not only abstinence but also mental health and after care. Study objectives include compilation of the outcome data for peer reviewed journal publication and creation of a replication protocol that will be made available for NAATP member providers to use in their treatment centers.

The study, which includes strong fidelity protocols, reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), will be driven by OMNI Institute Senior Researcher Holen Hirsh, Ph.D. and managed by NAATP Outcomes & Surveys Manager, Jessica Swan, NCACII, CACIII. Data will be collected under the supervision of OMNI staff through the following treatment center pilot site participants. The pilot participants are all successful, highly regarded treatment programs that represent a broad sampling of addiction treatment patients.
