Washington State Institute for Public Policy
January 2006
The 2005 Washington State Legislature directed the Institute to examine the following questions:
  • Can evidence-based treatment for people with mental health and chemical dependency disorders save money for state and local governments?
  • Viewed more broadly, do total benefits outweigh total costs?
The specific assigned task is to project state and local fiscal savings and other impacts of evidence-based treatments for those with chemical dependency disorders, mental illness, or both. This interim report summarizes the research approach and work currently underway. A final report will be presented to the Legislature by June 30, 2006.
