SACC Targeted Expansion Evaluation Project
To expand their clinical services for substance abuse treatment, Salvation Army Clitheroe Center (SACC) has requested funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The funding will provide SACC with resources to augment the number of beds available in their detoxification and intermediate care units. Funding from SAMHSA is contingent upon an independent evaluation of the additional services provided. To conduct an evaluation of the SACC Expansion Project, SACC has contracted with the Center of Behavioral Health Research and Services (BHRS) at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The primary avenue for conducting this evaluation will be collection of Government Performance and Reporting Act (GPRA) data. These data will be collected at baseline (entry into the SACC Expansion Project). At the same time, tracing information will be gathered through a locator form developed by UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs. Following procedures outlined in the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs Tracking Procedure Model, CBHRS will collect GPRA 6-month and 12-month follow-up data from each consumer.
