CURRENT EVALUATION PROJECTS

Rhode Island Family Treatment Drug Court (FTDC)
The Rhode Island Family Treatment Drug Court (FTDC) was first implemented in 2002 to protect children from newborn to 18 whose health and welfare may be adversely affected by parental substance use; enhance parental capacity to meet their children's needs; and expedite permanency for children in state care. FTDC accomplishes this by identifying substance-involved parents, developing comprehensive multi-disciplinary case plans in collaboration with child welfare, helping participants access treatment and other services, and measuring progress through intensive follow-up, service provider reports, repeated measure surveys, and frequent court supervision of court orders.
FTDC
SSTAR Health Integration Project (HIP)
The Stanley Street Treatment & Resources, Inc. (SSTAR) Health Integration Project (HIP) is federally funded through the Center for Mental Health Services, SAMHSA. HIP provides coordinated and integrated services through co-location of primary and specialty care medical services with community-based behavioral health care. The goal is to improve the physical health status of adults with serious mental illnesses (SMI) who have or are at risk for co-occurring primary care conditions and chronic diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia - all of which are risk factors for coronary heart disease.
HIP

NPIC/QAS collaborated with Steppingstone on "Stepping Forward", a 5 year project that ended September 2014.
