The Detroit Target City project was developed on a previously existing central intake system. The management information system, developed using a terminal-host model with a character based user interface, supports client treatment matching, treatment slot management, and case management tools. In addition to describing the system and its development lessons learned in the creation and implementation of the system are discussed.

Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
In 1993, the Detroit Health Department Bureau of Substance Abuse was awarded funding from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) to develop a Target Cities program. The Detroit Target Cities initiative was viewed as an opportunity to directly address some of the limitations and improve the effectiveness of the treatment systems for indigent substance abuse clients. The primary goals of the Detroit Target Cities project were to: (1) increase the proportion of indigent clients actually admitted into a treatment program through a system of case management, and (2) to keep indigent clients in treatment longer by improving client/provider matching and removing barriers which make it difficult for clients to remain in treatment.
