What can I expect during the screening process?

Licensed clinicians will ask questions about mental health/developmental and/or family history, risk of harm, physical health needs, medications, functional status, family relationships and stress, substance use, socialization, school, symptoms etc. It is important to be as honest as possible to get the correct information, so that the individual/family is placed in the appropriate level of care. If a child/minor is screened, the clinician will want to speak with both the minor and their guardians. 

SUD screenings are also conducted prior to a person being discharged from a hospital setting to ensure appropriate follow-up care is in place.
