Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has identified 10 domains for National Outcome Measures (NOM). The domains embody meaningful, real-life outcomes for people who are striving to attain and sustain recovery, build resilience, and work, learn, live, and participate fully in their communities. The NOMs matrix represents the beginning of a state-level reporting system that, in turn, will create an accurate and current national picture of substance-abuse and mental-health services.

Since President Obama signed into law the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010, this is one valid and reliable method of obtaining performance data. To find out about the other performance measurement tools used by SAMSHA, click here.
