Targeted Capacity Expansion - Methamphetamine and Cocaine 2006

In September 2006, the City of Cedar Rapids was awarded a three year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) under the Targeted Capacity Expansion (TCE) Grant Program. The purpose of this grant was to expand and enhance methamphetamine and cocaine treatment for adults in Linn, Benton, and Jones Counties in Iowa. The city contracted with the Area Substance Abuse Council (ASAC) to provide treatment services for the TCE program. The Iowa Consortium for Substance Abuse Research and Evaluation was contracted to conduct the evaluation component of the TCE project. Two hundred fifty individuals were served in the program. The evaluation included collection of outcome, process, and fidelity data. As part of the outcome evaluation, Consortium staff attempted to interview all clients admitted to the grant program approximately six months following admission and achieved a 92.3% follow-up rate.
