Advancing Recovery: State/Provider Partnerships for Quality Addiction Care

The Foundation's program, Advancing Recovery: State/Provider Partnerships for Quality Addiction Care, was designed to support partnerships between treatment provider organizations that deliver care, and states that are in the unique role of being both the largest purchaser of publicly funded treatment services (70 percent) and regulators and licensers of those services.The State of Delaware has created a partnership consisting of Delaware's Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, Brandywine Counseling, Kent/Sussex Counseling, and Connections CSP. This partnership wants to improve upon the drop-out rates that are occurring in the later stages of treatment and high relapse rates. To improve upon the drop rates in the later stages of treatment the entire outpatient community is work working the State to implement psychosocial interventions. One of the state's roles will be to work with TANF and the judicial system to remove any disincentives that are in place for consumers to continue treatment (e.g., TANF currently tells consumers once you have been in treatment for 60 days you should discontinue). The few providers and the State are also assertively pursuing another EBC: continuing care. The providers are pilot testing a post-treatment telephonic case management system to keep consumers engaged in sobriety. Once this test, or prototype, is completed it will be spread to other providers in the State.
