Alcohol and Drug Dependence Treatment – Ongoing Phase 2017-18 Edition

Why is getting ongoing treatment important if you have a problem with alcohol or drugs?

It is important to continue to get treatment if you have a problem with or dependence on alcohol or drugs. You are more likely to stop using alcohol or drugs if you start treatment services as soon as possible and complete the care.

How should doctors treat alcohol and drug dependence?

If you are diagnosed with an alcohol or drug problem, your doctor can help you get continued treatment services after the initial visit. By getting continued care, it is more likely that you will be able to successfully stop using alcohol or drugs.

What do the scores mean?

The scores show how well each health plan did at making sure adolescent or adult patients, with an alcohol or other drug dependence diagnosis, had initial treatment within two weeks of diagnosis and had at least two follow-up treatment services within 30 days of their initial treatment. The higher score means more patients got the right care at the right time.

The scores are based on information from at least 30 health plan member administrative records in 2016.

When comparing plans, small differences between scores are expected. The larger differences are important.
