Evaluation of HealthRight 360 Pregnant and Parenting Women’s Treatment Program

The Families Living our Recovery (FLOR) project provides comprehensive services to women offenders (N=114) who have transitioned to a residential drug treatment program following their release from prison or jail.  The program goals are to provide treatment for substance abuse, mental health, and trauma-related problems; to improve participants’ mental health, family functioning, employment status, and psychosocial functioning; and to assist participants in their reunification with children and other family members.  The FLOR project utilizes evidence-based substance abuse, parenting, and family-based interventions within the context of intensive case management services.  Participants also receive vocational training and training in life management skills.  Children of FLOR participants may reside in the residential treatment program and are provided with prevention, early intervention, and medical services through referral to community partners.  The program also aims to promote the development of a comprehensive, integrated service delivery system based on family-centered treatment planning. UCLA ISAP is conducting a process and outcome evaluation study of the FLOR project. The evaluation study is examining whether the project recruits the intended target population, the degree to which the program model is successfully implemented, and participant outcomes at follow-up, including substance use, mental health status, psychosocial functioning, family status, and employment and housing status.  Barriers in the delivery of addiction services, health services, and social services to women offenders will also be addressed.

Evaluation of Pregnant and Parenting Women’s (PPW) Program was funded by the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic (now HealthRight 360), contract 20114625 to UCLA, through SAMHSA grant No. TI023652, from October 2011 to September 2014 (with a no-cost extension through September 2015).

Evaluation of the Homeless Co-Occurring Treatment Program

The Homeless Co-occurring Treatment Program (HCOTP) is a 4–6 month intensive outpatient treatment program that integrates substance abuse and mental health services for individuals who are in transition to permanent housing.  An Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model is used to provide integrated and comprehensive services within the context of intensive case management, referral to wrap-around and recovery support services, and motivational interviewing to increase treatment engagement.  Targeted outcomes include reductions in substance use and mental health symptoms, increases in social support, and sustained residential stability.  The project will serve 38 individuals per year for 5 years, for a total of 190 individuals.  ISAP is conducting the process and outcome evaluation of this project, which includes client-level assessments at baseline, discharge, and 6-month follow-up; tracking of services provided to participants and their satisfaction with services; focus groups with staff and participants; and ongoing observations of the implementation process.   

Evaluation of the Homeless Co-Occurring Treatment Program was funded by a SAMHSA grant, T1021435, to Special Service for Groups, contract 20104695, from September 2010 to September 2015.
