If the CRS participant has a substance abuse disability and there are observations or other evidence of the use of alcohol or drugs, the provider must report the observations and evidence immediately to the CRS counselor. The provider must document that the counselor was informed and document all observations and other evidence of the participant's use of alcohol or drugs. Chemical dependency services must be delivered to the participant.  

Chemical dependency services must:

  • be provided based on assessed needs;
  • be developed and approved by the interdisciplinary team; and
  • become part of the participant’s Individualized Program Plan.
