Treating Addiction Together ECHO Evaluation Report 2019 – 2020


JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. utilized the ECHO model in New Hampshire (NH) to address capacity needs among substance use disorder (SUD) treatment providers related to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria. 

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a guided-practice model developed by the University of New Mexico’s Health Sciences Center aiming to reduce disparities in care. 

The Treating Addiction Together ECHO was developed to increase provider understanding and utilization of the ASAM Criteria in clinical decision-making. JSI used both continuous and periodic data collection in order to complete a mixed-methods outcome evaluation. The evaluation sought to determine the extent of what providers gained as a result of participation; what changes were made in practice settings; and ultimately what patients gained as a result of provider and/or practice changes.
