Success Rates

Samaritan Recovery Community participates in a third-party outcome evaluation project conducted by the University of Memphis, Institute for Substance Abuse Research and Evaluation (I-SARE).

The I-SARE project provides a post-treatment follow-up evaluation process for all substance abuse services for which the TDMHDD, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services contracts. Its purpose is to provide outcome data as part of the Division’s performance-based evaluation system which supports planning and funding. Samaritan and all other state-funded treatment facilities participate on an ongoing basis in the I-SARE project to assist in maximizing program effectiveness and ensure that outcome results are monitored on a regular basis.

The most recent annual I-SARE report includes follow-up data collected from thirty-five mental health centers and substance abuse treatment facilities from across the state.

As shown below, the report reflects that Samaritan’s programs (blue bar) surpass the statewide averages (green bar) on every key performance indicator at six months after discharge:

  • Completed Treatment 88%
  • Abstinent 78%
  • Improved Work Performance 72%
  • Overall Health 87%
  • Satisfaction 94%

My clean date is May 20, 2016.

Samaritan has brought me a long way. When I got here I didn’t know what was going to happen. I remember saying to myself, “Sit here and get yourself together,” but after being here I realized there was more to it than that.

There are counselors at Samaritan that cared about me. Really cared.
That was not something that I had or knew I wanted.

I have learned how to live again without the use of any kind of substance. I have gained relationships back, I have permanent employment. I have people in my life that care about me.

Without being at Samaritan and listening and learning how to live life on life’s terms, I might still be out there.
