DCF requires its funded substance abuse treatment providers to conduct the GAIN-Q3 to track client progress over time. The GAIN-Q3 is a standardized valid and reliable tool used in diverse settings for clinical decision-making, monitoring outcomes, and program evaluation.

The Global Appraisal of Individual Needs Q3 (GAIN-Q3) is a brief, 20-45 minute assessment used to identify and address a wide range of problems among adolescents and adults in clinical and general populations. As a clinical tool, the GAIN-Q3 is designed for use by personnel in diverse settings that include employee assistance programs, student assistance programs, health clinics, juvenile justice, criminal justice, child welfare, mental health, and substance abuse treatment programs.


Target Audience:  Staff who are new to GAIN-Q3 administration.  This session is intended for clinicians, therapist assistants and staff who will conduct the GAIN-Q3 with clients. No previous experience with the GAIN is necessary.


Goals of Training:  Building upon the online GAIN-Q3 training modules, the skills sessions will focus on applying that knowledge to a GAIN interview. The skills session will use round-robin and paired practice to reinforce the GAIN rules of administration. Time will be allowed for questions throughout the session.



  • Completion of the GAIN-Q3 online training modules. Link will be sent after registration.
  • Proof of a score of 80 or better on the quiz.
  • Send quiz results directly to Melissa or fax (860-760-5066) at least 3 business days prior to training.
