SARM project shares its message

Dr. Brian Rush with team member Nancy Chau

The Screening, Assessment, and Recovery Monitoring (SARM) Project has developed a staged protocol to screen and assess clients who are entering publicly‐funded agencies that provide specialized addiction treatment. Five addictions pilot sites participated in this study.

The SARM project team met with stakeholders and decision-makers from Ontario and across Canada on March 7, 2013, at the Ontario DTFP Knowledge Exchange Event. Project lead Dr. Brian Rush (pictured right with Nancy Chau at the event) said there’s significant support for the staged screening and assessment protocol to replace the currently mandated assessment package (ADAT).

The project is also developing a model and measures to monitor the outcomes of clients who are treated at the same agencies. Take a look at the main messages of his presentation and the slides.
