This funding is in response to CSAT announcement # TI-16-014 Targeted Capacity Expansion: Medication Assisted Treatment - Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction (MAT-PDOA).

Special Note: Only applicants that have been pre-approved by both CSAT and DHS DASA as a part of this Federal CSAT funding may apply for funding under this NOFO.

The Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (IDHS/DASA), submitted an application in response to SAMHSA/CSAT Funding Opportunity announcement (FOA) # TI-16-014, Targeted Capacity Expansion –Medication Assisted Treatment-Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction (MAT-PDOA). Illinois was one of the 28 eligible states listed in Appendix V of the FOA. It is projected that at least 300 unduplicated male and female adults will be admitted to these expanded and enhanced treatment services over the three years of SAMHSA/CSAT funding. The requested SAMHSA/CSAT MAT-PDOA funds will support an expansion and enhancement of: 1) expanded outpatient methadone treatment (OMT) services for opiate-addicted persons who are residents of City of Chicago community areas; 2.) expanded Vivitrol injection services for primary opiate offenders who are released from incarceration in the Sheridan Correctional Center and are returning to Chicago community areas; and, 3) expanded (OMT) services for opiate-addicted persons who are residents of Sangamon County in central Illinois. These two targeted geographic areas were selected based on the seriousness of opiate addiction and related problems within these areas of Illinois, coupled with their relative gaps in service needs.

A DASA approved data collection instrument will be used to obtain information to be collected and will be reported on the SAMHSA Common Data Platform.

Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 updated some aspects of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993. Federal agencies are required to set long-term goals and objectives as well as specific near-term performance goals. As part of this federal mandate, all SAMHSA grantees are required to collect and report performance data using approved measurement tools.

These services shall focus on the unique needs of the individual and the impacted families. Services will be specified in the individuals personal treatment and recovery plan as allowable by TITLE 77: PUBLIC HEALTH CHAPTER X: DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES SUBCHAPTER d: LICENSURE PART 2060 ALCOHOLISM AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT AND INTERVENTION LICENSES.
