Annotation: Ten States were reviewed to determine: (1) how States have implemented the 1988 legislative requirement to assess the quality and appropriateness of drug treatment services supported by the Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental Health Services (ADMS) Block Grant as specified in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, (2) whether States are providing pertinent information for the Congress to know the effect of the Federal investment in drug treatment services, and (3) with which approaches the Department of Health and Human Services plans to hold States more accountable for the use of ADMS funds.
Abstract: Most of the 10 States monitor administrative processes, but their review activities have failed to provide information on the quality and appropriateness of drug treatment. The Office for Treatment Improvement's (OTI) program, which is designed to better assure that the drug treatment services supported by the ADMS Block Grant funds are effective in reducing drug abuse, plans, to develop Federal drug treatment program guidelines, to institute Federal performance reviews of State substance abuse agencies and drug treatment programs, to provide technical assistance to States and providers as part of these reviews, and to collect more detailed information about what States will do and have done with funds received through the ADMS Block Grant. The improvements to and monitoring of drug treatment services supported by the ADMS Block Grant may be jeopardized if the States choose not to implement OTI's program.
