Leaders in addiction treatment announce national 'ACTION' campaign
Date:10/1/2007

e and their overall engagement in treatment. The campaign focuses on the following factors: 1) Rapid access to treatment, 2) Increased engagement by those who are in treatment, and 3) A seamless transition from one stage of care to another.

The 39 founding members of NIATx, as well as many other treatment provider organizations, have experienced the following results from implementing the campaign practices:

  • A 34.8 percent reduction in wait times;

  • A 33 percent reduction in no-shows;

  • A 21.5 percent increase in admissions;

  • And a 22.3 percent increase in treatment continuation.

"After implementing changes to improve client engagement, women in our New Leaf residential treatment program reported that they felt 'welcomed' upon admission rather than 'processed,'" says Mike Boyle, President and CEO of Fayette Companies in Peoria, Ill. "The dropout rate fell from 30 percent to 11 percent, which translates into a more comprehensive treatment tenure and higher client success rates," he adds.

ACTION Campaign tools and technical assistance are free to all who register at www.actioncampaign.org. The ACTION Web site will feature a series of ACTION Kits that provide step-by-step instructions on how to implement the NIATx treatment improvement practices. Once they sign up, campaign members will also be invited to participate in regular technical assistance conference calls, a campaign blog, and other peer networking activities.
