Monitoring, Evaluation, Training, & Assessments (META) History: META Consultants has over 20-years of providing evaluation and program development services to community-based organizations across several states. Our focus is on HIV prevention/ treatment, substance abuse disorder treatment/ prevention, behavioral health (mental health/ psychiatric care), and community health services.

META Consultants provides our clients with the tools and training necessary to develop programs such as:
HIV treatment, substance abuse disorder treatment/prevention, behavioral health (mental health/psychiatric care), and community health services
Behavioral health is sometimes called mental health and often includes substance use.
Community Health Services
Community health refers to non-clinical approaches for improving health, preventing disease and reducing health disparities through addressing social, behavioral, environmental, economic and medical determinants of health in a geographically defined population.
Substance Abuse Disorder
Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) are treatable, chronic diseases characterized by a problematic pattern of use of a substance or substances leading to impairments in health, social function, and control over substance use.
HIV Prevention programs for persons vulnerable for the acquisition of HIV. Individual and small-group interventions have been shown to significantly reduce risk behaviors among people who have been diagnosed with HIV to help ensure they do not transmit the virus to others.
Substance Abuse Prevention
Substance abuse prevention programs involves helping individuals develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to prevent substance abuse.
