There are many factors that are used to track the efficacy of treatment for substance abuse disorder, but one of the most important for care providers to consider is the metric of patient satisfaction.
One of GITA’s core values is using Internal Freedom as the prime indicator of therapeutic progress. With this in mind, patient satisfaction of the overall therapeutic process is a crucial indicator of whether or not a service is successful.
Often benchmarking of services in an industry includes hard metrics like cost, duration of treatment, number of treatments, etc. which allow service providers to compare their business activities. In order to value the therapeutic nature of the work that GITA members do, one of the primary benchmarking metrics that GITA makes available to practitioners is a questionnaire called the Ontario Perception of Care Tool for Mental Health and Addictions (OPOC-MHA).1
This questionnaire, designed and validate in Canada, is multi-lingual. The results of the OPOC are actionable, meaning they contain points that centers can directly address to improve their scores, and they are comparable with a growing number of conventional addiction and mental health treatment programs, allowing GITA members to assess their services in relation to the greater therapeutic field.
