ITEP (International Treatment Effectiveness Project) is proposed as one mechanism by which treatment quality may be both improved and measured. The project is a collaboration between the NTA, The Institute of Behavioral Research at the Texas Christian University (IBR at TCU) and a series of service providers in north-west England. ITEP builds on an internationally evaluated model of service improvement and adapts the model for use in England.
