Provider feedback to OASAS descibed in OASAS Statewide Comprehensive Plan 2008-2012

During the summer of 2007 OASAS staff and consultants contacted all 1,550 OASAS licensed programs in New York State to ask for feedback and input on how the addiction treatment and prevention system could be improved. I (David Markham) was interviewed on the telephone by a consultant and answered her questions as accurately and completely as I was able. Here is a description of that effort in the OASAS Statewide Comprehensive Plan Report 2008 - 2012.

I was also interviewed in person. I thought this was a geograhically large undertaking, but important for the commissioner to get pulse on the state of the state from actual providers accross the state. From the feedback, the commissioner has set up several gold standard committees working on the critical areas of concern. There is always room for more to join the groups and/or sub-committees.
