Information about how well an integrated behavioral program is working is important on a number of levels:
- for administrators in shaping the direction of the program;
- for providers in determining effective clinical approaches;
- for clients both in evaluating self-progress and in deciding where to obtain treatment;
- for funders in ascertaining how effectively their current dollars are being spent and what to invest in for the future;
- and for the government in crafting policy and community direction.
The pages here are meant to capture some of the key areas for measurement and evaluation.
