Evaluations were completed on these records using ASAM PPC. A level of care recommendation was then made based on the clinical information in the record.
To accomplish these objectives, it examines the substance use and treatment experiences for a group of adolescents without any prior substance abuse treatment who entered outpatient treatment at a provider organization that offered a full continuum of care (i.e., early intervention, outpatient, intensive outpatient, and residential services) and utilized ASAM PPC criteria.
