Missouri's SBIRT will promote screening, brief intervention, referral and treatment services by using evidence based practices and an automated system of tablet computers. Over five years the project will develop and demonstrate effective SBIRT processes in general and emergency medical settings. The project will screen over 80,000 individuals serving 25,000 with significant risk behaviors before they become dependent. The project will use trained substance abuse professionals conducting face-to-face screening of all individuals entering selected medical care facilities. Screening will detect misuse of alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs and tobacco. The goal is to fill a gap in the continuum of care, develop an effective SBIRT implementation, demonstrate the impact of SBIRT on the health of individuals and societal costs, and create an environment in which a sustainable SBIRT model can spread across the state.

Missouri is a previously funded ATR applicant who will focus on enhancing quality in a multitude of areas - services, providers, recovery systems, and outcomes. Priority populations will include veterans and National Guard soldiers returning from the Iraq-Afghan War, offenders returning to the community, treatment court participants, and other disadvantaged Missourians in need of substance abuse treatment services. Two to four recovery-oriented systems of care will be established in selected urban and rural areas of Missouri that have been identified based on community disparities, as well as their connections to the priority populations identified for the ATR III project. Locations will be selected based upon past performance and review of proposals that will be solicited from existing ATR II clinical treatment and recovery support providers addressing how they will: 1) establish linkages with clinical treatment, recovery supports, and other community resources; 2) serve the priority populations; 3) achieve longer lengths of engagement in treatment; and, 4) achieve and maintain a GPRA follow-up rate of 80 percent. Recovery-oriented systems will utilize a person-centered planning model to ensure client choice and involvement in the treatment planning process to include goals that will lead to the achievement of important recovery domains including: abstinence, stable housing, employment or continuing education, legal status, and social connections. A major enhancement to Missouri's ATR III project will be the addition of recovery coordinators who will engage clients and follow them through their ATR treatment and recovery process, serving as an advocate, mentor, monitor, and support - all of which will help achieve and sustain recovery. All voucher services (clinical treatment and recovery support) will be fully funded by ATR. Missouri plans to serve 3,234 clients per year for a total of 12,936 clients over the four-year grant period.

Faced with barriers to basic resources, these women (and their children) are at greater risk of experiencing serious physical and mental health problems, abusing their children, being victimized by domestic violence and securing and maintaining societal supports for their basic survival. Similarly, fathers of the children, partners of the women, and other extended family members of the women and children in treatment may face equally difficult challenges themselves, preventing the family from being safe, healthy and together.

The Enhancement of Services to Children Affected by Methamphetamine in the 35th Judicial Circuit Family Treatment Court (FDTC) Grant will expand and enhance the services provided to the children and families in the FDTC. The goals are to provide an effective case management system; to increase access to supportive services for the children; to increase the clients' understanding of healthy child development; and to assist in the ongoing care of their children. These goals will be met through the following objectives; creation of a service coordinator position to assess family needs and make appropriate referrals, strengthening partnerships with community resources, contracting with a parent aid, implementing the evidence-based strengthening families program, and providing support services for the parents. Because Dunklin County is a small, rural community the 35th Circuit is applying as a multi-county partnership. The Stoddard County Adult Drug Court uses a family treatment court model due to the number of participants with children in the family court system. The Dunklin County Adult Treatment Court considers participants as dual track with the FDTC if they have children involved in the family court system. Access to services will be simple to facilitate as the courts are in the same Judicial Circuit and several team members are on all of the treatment teams.
