In 2008, the Tennessee Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services (DADAS) selected EMT as the evaluator and technical services provider for the state's PFS grant. EMT developed a Tennessee site-specific website for 13 online training courses on substance abuse topics including: logic models, the strategic planning framework, and environmental policies. These courses have been presented to over 1,400 learners. In addition, a seven-part core competency curriculum based on requirements of International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) is being developed for the prevention field. EMT also accessed state and federal archive data on substance use consequences (e.g., health, traffic, criminal justice, etc.) and developed a web-based reporingt system documenting outcomes and trends for all 98 counties. An economic cost impact study on alcohol and other drug (AOD) consequences was prepared for DADAS as well as a state AOD needs assessment document. Both tools have assisted state planners in developing their strategic plan for behavioral health.
