The Role of Formal Planning in an Era of No Growth: The Philadelphia Experience
This paper presents a background on Philadelphia’s planning agency for drug and alcohol treatment and prevention, and in particular discusses the need for a formal planning process as the Philadelphia services system reached the end of a period of growth. The Philadelphia experience is presented as a background for identifying common planning issues affecting drug and alcohol authorities across the nation. The formal planning model developed by CODAAP for both programmatic plan development and fiscal allocations is briefly discussed, and the paper concludes with an analysis of early indications of the effectiveness of this model.
