ATLAS® is the first and only web-based platform that allows the public searching for high-quality addiction treatment to locate and compare facilities, including trustworthy, standardized quality data on the services available and feedback on the services reported by other patients. ATLAS helps the public navigate to better quality care and supports providers in quality improvement.

The core mission of Shatterproof is to reverse the addiction crisis in the United States and to serve patients and families. ATLAS fulfills Shatterproof’s goal of leveraging quality measures to increase transparency in and encourage improvements to addiction treatment. It is based upon Shatterproof’s National Principles of Care©.

ATLAS collects facility-level data from multiple, validated sources. Data from these sources is displayed in publicly facing dashboards that allow for easy comparison between facilities. Moreover, ATLAS promotes quality improvement by offering password-protected portals for facilities, payers, and states to view and use the data to drive quality improvement and innovation.

ATLAS is currently live in six states (DE, LA, MA, NC, NY, WV), and will be expanding to seven additional states in 2022 (CA, FL, NJ, OK, PA, three others which have yet to be announced). These 13 states represent 43.5% of the population in the United States, and ATLAS is in conversations with additional states as well. Shatterproof works closely with many addiction treatment stakeholders, including states health departments, provider and medical organizations, payers, and recovery advocates, to ensure successful and collaborative implementation.

ATLAS is an initiative overseen as by a cross-functional, composed of operational, research, and stakeholder engagement staff, who work in NYC or remotely. Preference will be given to candidates in a major metropolitan area with access to a major airport.
