National Outcomes Measures (NOM)

The 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.
