Alcohol and Drug Counselor | Performance Domain 2: Treatment Planning

Treatment planning is the process of identifying and prioritizing problems needing resolution. The counselor and the client work together during treatment planning. In addition, they agree upon immediate and long-term goals, and make decisions in regards to treatment process and the resources to be used.

Global Criteria

  • Explain assessment results to the client in an understandable manner.
  • Identify and prioritize problems based on client’s needs.
  • Formulate immediate and long-term goals using behavioral terms (book recommendation: Martin, Garry. “Behavior Modification: What it is and how to do it.” 9th ed.)
  • Identify the treatment methods and resources to be used as appropriate for each client.
