Screen for a potential alcohol or substance abuse problem:
- during the Intake Assessment;
- when completing a face-to-face REDE or review of the Responsibility and Services Plan; and
- whenever staff suspect the client may have an alcohol or substance abuse problem.
Include the referral in the client's Responsibility and Services Plan. Connect the client with alcohol or substance abuse treatment services. The client must sign the Consent for Disclosure statement on the back of the referral form
to allow the treatment provider or HMO to respond regarding the client's need for treatment.
