© 2002 BY THE JOURNAL OF DRUG ISSUES LOS ANGELES COUNTY EVALUATION SYSTEM (LACES): BRINGING ACCOUNTABILITY TO ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT THROUGH A COLLABORATION BETWEEN PROVIDERS, PAYERS, AND RESEARCHERS DESIRÉE CRÈVECOEUR, BETH FINNERTY, RICHARD A. RAWSON __________ The design and early implementation stages of a large-scale, system-wide evaluation of Los Angeles County’s substance abuse treatment system (Los Angeles County Evaluation System: An Outcomes Reporting Program, or LACES) will be examined. In the first stage of implementation, individuals entering treatment will provide a standardized data set using the Los Angeles County Participant Reporting System (LACPRS) admission forms and the Addiction Severity Index (ASI). At treatment program discharge, the LACPRS discharge form will be administered, and at one-year post admission the ASI will be re-administered to a stratified sample of 1,500 individuals from 31 “sentinel programs.” Additional information will be gathered on the services provided by Los Angeles County alcohol and other drug treatment/recovery programs. Data from LACES will provide the treatment providers feedback on the impact of treatment services and will create the foundation of an ongoing evaluation system for the County’s substance abuse treatment clients and services. Desirée A. Crèvecoeur, M.A., is completing her doctorate in social psychology at Claremont Graduate University. Her research interests include program evaluation, the perpetration of hate crimes and other forms of violence, and substance abuse treatment. She is project director for the LACES program at the Integrated Substance Abuse Programs at UCLA. Beth Finnerty, M.P.H., received her Master of Public Health from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, School of Public Health. Her research interests include drug abuse epidemiology, HIV/AIDS epidemiology, and drug abuse treatment. She is the epidemiologist for the LACES program at the Integrated Substance Abuse Programs at UCLA. Richard Rawson, Ph.D., is Associate Director of the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs and has conducted substance abuse research and treatment since 1974. Dr. Rawson is Principal Investigator of LACES and several major research-practice projects: CSAT-funded Los Angeles Practice Improvement Collaborative and Pacific Southwest Addiction Technology Transfer Center, and the NIDA-funded Methamphetamine Clinical Trial Group.
