Screening

Screening is a tool used to determine whether a client is eligible, and appropriate, for admission into a particular program.

Global Criteria

  • Evaluate psychological, social, and physiological signs and symptoms of alcohol and other drug use and abuse.
  • Determine the client’s eligibility and appropriateness for admission or referral.
  • Identify any co-occurring conditions, such as medical, psychiatric, physical, etc. This will indicate the need for additional assessment and services.
  • Abide by applicable laws, regulations, and agency policies governing alcohol and other drug abuse services.
