Assessment and Placement

Best Practices: Assessment and Placement
To be eligible for participation in the HOPE Consortium, individuals must have an assessment that results in diagnosis of an opioid and/or methamphetamine use disorder consistent with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). Recognized placement criteria are required for determination of level of care. Since not all levels of care are available locally, careful documentation is encouraged to provide rationale for treatment at a level other than that supported by use of recognized placement criteria.


Support
The HOPE Consortium supports use of recognized placement criteria through ongoing educational opportunities. For more information, please contact us.
