Treatment Perception Survey

Kern County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services (KernBHRS) is required to administer the Treatment Perception Survey (TPS) as part of the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) waiver evaluation. Administration of the TPS also fulfills the county’s External Quality Review Organization (EQRO) requirement related to conducting a client satisfaction survey using a validated tool.  The collected information is utilized to measure consumers’ perceptions of access to services and quality of care, and to evaluate and improve the consumer experience. The TPS is administered in the Fall of each year and includes Adult and Youth versions in both English and Spanish.

Proposition 47

Kern County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services (KernBHRS) recognizes that there are many paths of recovery for individuals with mental health problems and substance use disorders who have been impacted by the criminal justice system. The Kern Transitions Program (KTP) seeks to fill gaps in the local service system to allow these individuals to follow the pathway and receive services tailored to their stages of recovery, criminogenic need and individualized preferences. Its purpose is to reduce recidivism, enable recovery, and support community reintegration. The project targets individuals who have high criminogenic needs and risk and emphasizes populations and communities that have been historically  underserved.
