General Information/Instructions
Read all directions before completing this needs assessment.
It is the intent of the Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs (BDAP) to further enhance and improvesubstance abuse prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery policies and practices throughoutthe commonwealth. This work is carried out in conjunction with Single County Authorities (SCAs), theircontracted providers and the community at large. As a result, the SCAs have flexibility to develop theirservice delivery system in response to community needs. The SCA has the role of planning andcoordinating all substance abuse services in the county(ies) it serves. In order to effectively plan andcoordinate services, a needs assessment is required.This needs assessment combines the former Prevention Needs Assessment and Treatment NeedsAssessment into one comprehensive needs assessment. The process involves the identification,collection, analysis, and synthesis of data to define problems within a geographic area. This needsassessment will be the foundation for your Prevention/Treatment Comprehensive Strategic Plan. Manyof the issues/needs/resources you identify here will become the focus of your plan. Although yourneeds assessment will be used in planning, keep in mind that issues/needs/resources that you identifyneed to be discussed regardless of whether they will be something you plan to address. This isparticularly important because BDAP will use the information from these needs assessments to helpguide the State Plan. The needs assessments will also be used by BDAP to identify common or unmetneeds across SCAs, and determine possible avenues for addressing these issues at the state level.This needs assessment should utilize a data driven decision-making process. Areas of need/problemsthat are discussed in this needs assessment report must be identified using the best available datasources. The needs assessment team that you assemble should work to identify and collect the datanecessary to determine the needs of your population. The needs assessment team should also work todetermine what resources are currently available to meet identified needs. When reviewing data it isimportant the needs assessment team thinks about factors that may be skewing or biasing the data andhow representative the data may (or may not) be for certain populations. Suggested and required datasources have been provided to you throughout this document. These are by no means an exhaustive listof possible data sources. Feel free to seek out and discuss data other than what has been noted in thisdocument when responding to the questions and objectives within the document.The SCA shall submit the combined Prevention/Treatment Needs Assessment to BDAP in accordancewith the BDAP Report Schedule.
