ADAP, DVHA, and the Blueprint for Health are collaborating on a performance improvement project (PIP) to address the treatment initiation and engagement performance measures. This process involves community level internal and external stakeholders. A PIP is a concentrated effort on a particular issue; it involves gathering information systematically to clarify issues or problems, and intervening for improvements.
This group has compiled evidence-based strategies and best practices to improve initiation and engagement of alcohol and other drug treatment in clinical and community settings. Existing Blueprint community health teams and AHS District Office leadership are leading community stakeholders to implement the strategies that meet the needs of the region.
