The NIATx Foundation and you

About the NIATx Foundation

The NIATx Foundation offers consulting and training in process improvement and organizational change. The tools and techniques we teach provide a step-by-step process for your team to follow when leading and sustaining change. Our team of more than 20 scientists, researchers, consultants, and others experienced in quality improvement training has worked with individual behavioral healthcare organizations and national, state, county, and city agencies on multiple projects.

Organizations that have used the NIATx model have reduced no-shows and waiting times and have increased admissions and continuation in treatment. These improvements have improved staff morale, reduced staff turnover, and in many cases, increased revenue. Our focus includes:

  • Health Care
  • Addiction Treatment
  • Mental Health
  • Community-based Social Services


When organizations operate more efficiently, customers receive better care. Treatment organizations using the NIATx model to increase access to and retention in treatment experienced dramatic improvements, reducing no-shows by as much as 32% and increasing admissions by as much as 25%.
