  • Assessment and Referral

    Assessment and referral programs provide a variety of activities, including prescreening, screening, assessment, determination of need, and referral to appropriate level of care. The provision of information on available resources is not considered a full assessment and referral program. An adequate assessment must be conducted to provide more informed referrals. Assessment and referral may include hotlines, “warmlines,” or resource referral systems, such as “211” or “First Call for Help.”

    Such programs may be separate, freestanding programs; an independent program within a larger organization; or a specifically identified activity within a system of care. Organizations performing assessment and referral as a routine function of entrance into other core programs, such as their case management, counseling, or residential programs, are not required to apply these standards unless they are specifically seeking accreditation for assessment and referral.
