  2. Screening (TAP 21 – Pg 37) • Process for determining appropriateness and eligibility for admission to program. • DSM-IV-TR criteria for Abuse and Dependency, no matter what the substance, it’s the same. Not assessing for treatment plan, just enough for determining appropriateness/eligibility. Ask questions in a different format, not just reading off list. Clinical Evaluation

  3. Abuse 1 or more of the following within a 12-month period 1). Failure to fulfill major role obligations (ever quit job) 2). Recurrent use in situations that are hazardous (Drive/Wk) 3). Recurrent legal problems (DWI, Public Drunk, shoplift) 4). Continued use despite knowledge of problems Clinical Evaluation

  4. Dependency 3 or more of the following occurring at the same time in the same 12 month period. 1). Tolerance 2). Withdrawal 3). Substance taken in larger amounts or over longer period of time than was intended 4). Desire or efforts to cut down or control use 5). Great deal of time getting, using or recovering from effects 6). Important activity given up or reduced due to use 7). Use despite knowledge of a problem Clinical Evaluation

  5. In evaluating signs/symptoms of use/abuse/dependency be familiar with: • Psychological: Mental status, oriented x4 (person, place, time, and situation), aggressive behavior, arrested emotional development, cognitive clouding, inappropriate affective responses (crying when happy, laughing when sad). *Be careful of diagnosing Bi-Polar* -always remember Substance-Induced, Mood Disorders, Dementia, Delirium, etc. Paranoia, excessive suspiciousness, suicidal/homicidal ideation, etc. • Social: Listen for - # of friends, alienated, ostracized, withdrawn, lonely/alone. Short social hx – recreation activity, vocational hx. How do friends and family feel about use? Prostitution, promiscuity, poor judgment/problem solving skills. Legal problems, financial problems. • Physiological: Liver problems, wt loss, recurrent medical problems, stomach, pancreas, and internal organ problems. Substance-Induced medical problems. Hx of malingering. Clinical Evaluation

  6. In looking for appropriateness and eligibility remember: Appropriate: Suitable; fitting Eligible: Qualified; worthy of choice • Appropriateness: determined by being suitable for environment and modality (in-patient, out-pt), residential/non-residential chemotherapy (methadone, detox), daycare (DRC, JDRC, out-pt detox, and intensive out-pt). Physical condition of client, psych functioning (level of articulation, ed level, disability), outside supports, resources, previous tx hx, motivation and philosophy of program. • Eligibilityof client determined by focus (harm reduction, re/habilitation), target population (males, females, adolescents, gays, etc), funding requirements (only county/state residents). Other eligibility requirements include age, legal status, veteran status, income level, and referral source. Clinical Evaluation

  7. The procedures by which a counselor/program evaluate an individual’s strengths, problems and needs for the development of a Tx Plan. • A continuing procedure in which the counselor IDs and evaluates the client’s strengths, weaknesses, problems and needs in order to asst in the development of a tx plan. This process is used to evaluate major life areas (i.e. physical health and functioning, vocational development, social adaptation, and legal involvement). Also to assess the extent to which alc/drugs has interfered with the client’s functioning in each of these areas. • The result of this assessment should suggest the focus of tx!! Clinical Evaluation

  8. Always use appropriate interview techniques – closed and open- ended questioning, “miracle” questioning, summarizing, clarification. Specific facts from hx are important. Once info is gained, counselor will use this info to assess [job loss, married 4x (relational diff), no recreational activity (avocation deficiency), few friends (no supports), meets DSM criteria (social obligations, multiple DWI’s)]. • Focus should be on how this relates to alco/drug use of client. • This leads to the development of diagnostic evaluation of results of assessment. Usually including a DSM-IV five axes Dx: I: Clinical Disorders; Other Conditions That May be a Focus of Clinical Attention II: Personality Disorders; Mental Retardation III: General Medical Conditions IV: Psychosocial and Environmental Conditions V: Global Assessment of Functioning Clinical Evaluation

  9. Process in that the counselor and client ID and rank problems, establish agreed upon immediate and long-term goals, and decide upon a tx process and resources to be utilized. • This is a tx contract, based on the results of the assessment and is the product of a negotiation b/t client and counselor. The language of the problems, goals and strategy statements should always be specific, intelligible to the client and expressed in behavioral terms. The statement of the problem precisely elaborates on a client need ID’ed previously. Treatment Planning

  10. The goal statements refer specifically to the ID’ed problem and may need 1 objective or a set of objectives intended to resolve or mitigate the problem. Behavioral terms are used in the goals in order for the client and counselor to determine progress in tx. • The intervention or strategy is a specific activity used to link the problem with the goal. It describes the services, who is responsible, when to be provided, and at what frequency. • Tx plans are dynamic and regularly reviewed and modified PRN. Treatment Planning

  11. SMART Goals: S: Specific M: Measureable A: Attainable R: Realistic T: Time-Limited Treatment Planning

  12. The results of the assessment are usually explained to the client. Dx’s should be communicated tactfully. • Problems should be ID’ed and ranked in order of priority. The client should be part of this process, all the way through. The Person-Centered approach should always be utilized. Treatment Planning

  13. After problems are ID’ed and ranked, then both set out to formulate immediate (in tx) and long-term goals (post tx). Always use behavioral terms (Decrease drug use impulsively by 75%, increase refusal skills by 75%; decrease instances of cursing by 75%, increase instances of affirming by 50%, etc ). Treatment Planning

  14. Always identify methods and resources used to assist the client (per their individual needs), so that they may accomplish goals. • Any resources should be id’ed– which planned interventions (group, individual), lectures, equipment, books, videos, telephone, TV, etc). Treatment Planning

  15. This is identifying the needs of the client that cannot be met by the counselor/agency and assisting the client to utilize the supports and community resources available. • The counselor should be aware of the community resources, both AOD and others and be aware of the limitations of each service and if these limitations could adversely affect the client. He/she should also be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of the referral process, including confidentiality requirements and tracking outcomes of the referral. Referral
