In October 2000, the Consortium began year three of work through Iowa Department of Public Health and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) to help strengthen and enhance the independent Outcome Monitoring System (OMS). Through the TOPPS (Treatment Outcomes Performance Pilot Studies) II protocol the OMS will test a computerized instrument for assessment and placement in a pilot group of agencies. Along with the computerized assessment, researchers will be implementing a screening instrument for reported co-occurring psychiatric symptoms, identifying outcomes for methamphetamine users and analyzing supplementary statewide data sets to aid in the collection of specific outcome variables for substance abuse clients.
