Standing Workgroups

Essential activities of the Washington Circle are carried out in three standing workgroups. In the Public Sector Workgroup, WC members work collaboratively with selected State AOD agencies to pilot the identification, treatment initiation and treatment engagement measures. The Stakeholder Education Workgroup serves as the WC liaison to the various accrediting, funding and other groups for whom the WC measures may have relevance. The third standing group is a Washington Circle partner: the Forum on Performance Measures, the organization designated by SAMHSA to coordinate development of field-specific measures of performance in the behavioral health field.
