2017 SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT BLOCK GRANT ANNUAL SURVEY

The Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (IDHS/DASA) is requesting that each funded agency complete the 2017 Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) Survey. DASA uses survey information in combination with other data to measure priority areas we have identified as critical to our system. The 2017 Survey will capture information that DASA does not currently collect through other data collection methods. DASA utilizes this information to report back to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) on the priority areas and our progress on addressing unmet service needs and gaps in our system. Therefore, provider participation is vital in this process. The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and should only be submitted once by each funded agency.

The survey can be accessed via the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SABG2017

Please have all survey submissions in by Wednesday September 20, 2017.
