During the second PDSA cycle, we collected data in which 58 detox clients were discharged during the period 4/17-4/25/06. Again, one goal was to go from 13.1% to 40% in treatment referrals being made as our contracted goal is 35.8%.

Findings: 1) All discharged clients were referred somewhere except for two clients who refused any referral; 2) 66% were referred to some form of substance abuse treatment; 3) 52% were referred to internal treatment centers; 4) 50% accepted the offered referral; and 5) 45% were also (or at least) referred to 12-step support groups.

Discussion:  Our finding of 66% has far exceeded both goals (CLA and Signal).

One goal was to go from 13.1% to 40% in treatment referrals being made as our contracted goal is 35.8%. During the first PDSA cycle, we collected additional baseline data in which 26 detox clients were discharged during the period 4/3-4/7/06.

Findings: 1) All discharged clients were referred somewhere; 2) Approx. 35% were referred to some form of substance abuse treatment; and 3) Most clients refused the treatment referral.

Discussion: Our 35% finding is already near our contracted goal of 35%. However, two training issues were found that needed to be corrected. We will run a second PDSA cycle after retraining to verify. Also, based upon staff input, we will create referral agency list to provide for clients.

The first change team has met twice, done a flow chart and made some interesting decisions on intervention.  The goal was to increase admissions to our batterers intervention program.  We have done some meetings with probation officers and are now waiting to see what the impact will be.
