In 1979, Integrity began developing a database for their student members. In 1986 this database was redeveloped in MSAccess. In 1996, Dr. Chris Woodbury worked with David Kerr on redeveloping and normalizing this database more efficiently. Finally there was consultant help from Microsoft and Hewlett Packard. In 1998, Integrity with the help of three other local addiction treatment agencies, Cura, Renaissance, and Daytop began developing a web-based client tracking system and database to help agencies fulfill their missions more efficiently and effectively. This new system was named WEBUS
WEBUS technology was produced with the assistance of federal funding from the Center of Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT); monitoring and guidance from the State’s Drug Addiction Services Department (DAS). It was crafted by treatment and prevention agencies directors and designed by IT experts from Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Second Foundation. WEBUS was constructed with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) 13 Principals of Effective Treatment in mind.
The mission of WEBUS is to provide database Internet technology and training of client management and tracking which enhances client progress through substance abuse treatment. WEBUS treatment providers use the system to put the client through a community based treatment and support agency consortium, which enhances success through a continuum of care approach
