Project: Targeted Capacity Expansion Program for Substance Abuse Treatment and HIV/AIDS Services (TCE-HIV)—NEW

This data collection is to study the risk and protective factors related to substance use and HIV. The primary purpose of the Project is to conceptualize, plan, and implement a multi-site valuation to investigate the process, outcome, and effect of substance abuse treatment and HIV/AIDS services provided by 48 SAMHSA grantees. The grantees' focus is on enhancing and expanding substance abuse treatment and/or outreach and pretreatment services in conjunction with HIV/AIDS services in African American, Hispanic/Latino, and other racial and ethnic minority communities. A multi-stage approach has been used to develop the appropriate theoretical framework, conceptual model, evaluation design and protocols, and data collection instrumentation. Process and outcome measures have been developed to fully capture community and contextual conditions, the scope of the TCE-HIV Grantee program implementation and activities, and client outcomes. A mixed-method approach (survey, semi-structured interviews, focus groups) will be used, for example, to examine collaborative community linkages established between grantees and other service providers (e.g., primary health care, medical services for persons living with HIV/AIDS, substance abuse recovery support services), determine which program models and what type and amount of client exposure to services contribute to significant changes in substance abuse and HIV/AIDS risk behaviors of the targeted populations, and determine the impact of the TCE-HIV services on providers, clients, and communities.

The process data collection for the project will be conducted bi-annually (i.e., every other year during the 4-year period) and the client outcome data collection is ongoing throughout the project and will be collected at baseline/intake, discharge and 6 months post baseline/intake for all treatment clients. The respondents are clinic-based social workers and counselors (e.g., social workers, licensed alcohol and drug counselors, licensed clinical professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers), clinic-based administrators and clinic-based clients.
