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.

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