Shatterproof to Build a Rating System for Addiction Treatment Programs

Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation addiction causes families, announced that they are building a rating system of addiction treatment programs. The organization will measure whether addiction treatment programs are delivering care that aligns with evidence-based best practices. The information will be made publicly available to those searching for high-quality addiction treatment, as well as to public and private payers, states, and referral sources. This tool will bring transparency and credibility to the addiction treatment system and align market forces with high-quality care. This is a $5M project that has been made possible with the funding of two foundations and a coalition of five national health care companies. The Shatterproof Rating System will utilize data from three sources: insurance claims, provider surveys, and consumer experience. The National Quality Forum (NQF) will collaborate with Shatterproof on this important project. NQF will identify experts and partner to assess the best way to promote high quality care in addiction treatment, while also making recommendations to implement a national addiction treatment program rating system.
