This chapter provides an example of a recently completed statewide substance abuse treatment needs assessment and applies many of the concepts introduced in previous chapters. The chapter is divided into three sections. In the first section, the planning activities of the needs assessment are described with special attention given to how the data collection method and sampling frame were determined. The second section details how data collection was conducted with the assistance of a survey research center, as well as the process of analyzing and interpreting data in the context of existing secondary data sets. The final section describes the various considerations in disseminating the results of the needs assessment study. Specifically, details about tailoring the final report and presentation of the findings for different audiences are discussed.

Keywords:   needs assessment planning, survey research, sampling, margin of error, response rate, dissemination
