1 AMERICAN SOCIETY OF ADDICTION MEDICINE Patient Placement Criteria for the Treatment of Substance-Related Disorders (Second Edition-Revised) 2001 LME Utilization Review Training
2 LEARNING GOALS: By the end of this training session participants will be able to: Define the Adult and Adolescent Substance Abuse Continuum of Care Understand rationale for ASAM PPC-2 (Revised). Identify implications for clinical practice within existing substance abuse service structures using the multidimensional assessment and placement criteria. Determine levels of care & intensities of service to adults and adolescents with substance-related disorders.
3 Substance Abuse Continuum of Care Adult SA Continuum of Care (handout #1 & #2) Outpatient/Residential Continuum Detoxification Continuum Adolescent SA Continuum of Care (handout #3)
4 Guiding Principles* Objectivity Choice of Treatment Levels Continuum of Care Treatment Failure Length of Stay Twelve Step, Mutual Help, & Self Help Recovery Groups Treatment Outcomes (Real World Considerations pages 17-19) *ASAM PPC-2R Guiding Principles pages 15-17
5 How and When to Use the Criteria To assign the appropriate level of service and level of care. To make decisions about continued service or discharge by ongoing assessment and review of progress. To do effective treatment planning and documentation.
6 Key Components of PPC Model A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ASSESSMENT MODEL that organizes data from clinical interviews: Dimension 1: Acute Intoxication and/or Withdrawal Potential Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions/Complications Dimension 3: Emotional, Behavioral or Cognitive Conditions/Complications Dimension 4: Readiness to Change Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use or Continued Problem Potential Dimension 6: Recovery/Living Environment
7 Dimension 1: Detoxification/Withdrawal Potential What risk is associated w/ pt s current level of acute intoxication? Serious risk of severe withdrawal symptoms or seizures based on previous history? Recent discontinuation or significant reduction of alcohol/drug use? Recent increase? Does pt have responsible supports to assist in ambulatory detoxification if medically safe? The best predictor of current and future withdrawal problems, are past withdrawal problems!
8 *ITR Description of Dimension 1: Intoxicated/Withdrawal Symptoms Low: Not under the influence; no withdrawal potential Medium: Recent use, potential for intoxication; presenting with mild withdrawal symptoms High: Severe withdrawal hx, presenting with seizures, CIWA score greater than 10 *VO ITR Instructions page 5
9 Dimension 2: Medical Conditions & Complications Are there current physical illnesses other than withdrawal, that need to be addressed or which complicate treatment? Are there chronic illnesses which might be exacerbated by withdrawal, (e.g., diabetes, hypertension)? Are there chronic conditions that affect treatment, (e.g., chronic pain treated with narcotic analgesics)? Evaluate for the following: 1. Conditions that place the pt at risk (e.g., pregnancy, esophageal varices, seizure disorder, cardiac issues, diabetes). 2. Conditions that interfere with treatment (e.g., the need for kidney dialysis, visual/auditory disorders).
10 *ITR Description of Dimension 2: Biomedical Conditions Low: No current medical problems; no diagnosed medical condition; no care from primary care physician or prescribed meds Medium: Diagnosed medical condition; care from primary care physician; problematic response to conditions and/or care High: Life threatening medical condition; medical problems interfering with treatment; hospitalization needed.
11 Dimension 3: Emotional/Behavioral/ Cognitive Conditions & Complications Current psychiatric illnesses or psychological, behavioral, emotional or cognitive problems that need to be addressed or which complicate treatment? Chronic conditions that effect treatment? (stable but chronic schizophrenia, affective or personality disorder problems) Do any of these problems appear to be an expected part of addiction illness or do they appear to be separate? If connected to addiction are they severe enough to warrant specific mental health treatment? If pt suicidal, what is the lethality? Weapon? Plan?
12 *ITR Description of Dimension 3: Emotional/Behavioral/Cognitive Low: No current cognitive/emotional/behavioral conditions Medium: Psychiatric symptoms, including cognitive, emotional, behavioral; complications interfering with recovery efforts. High: Active DT/s, S/HI; destructive, violent, or threatening behaviors, refusing to attend program schedule
13 Dimension 4: Readiness for Change Does the patient feel coerced into treatment or actively object to receiving treatment? At what Stage of Change would you currently assess them to be? If willing to accept treatment, how strongly does the patient disagree with others perception that s/he has an addiction problem? Is the patient compliant to avoid a negative consequence (external motivation) or internally distressed in a selfmotivated way about their substance use/abuse?
14 *ITR Description of Dimension 4: Readiness for Change Low: Accepting need for treatment; attending, participating, and can ID future goals, plans Medium: Ambivalent about treatment; seeking help to appease others; avoiding consequences High: Denial of treatment despite severe consequences; refusing or is unable to engage due to D-3, D-5 symptoms interfering
15 Dimension 5: Relapse, Continued Use or Continued Problem Potential Is the patient in immediate danger of continued severe distress and drinking/drugging behavior? Does the pt have any recognition & understanding of, and skills for how to cope with his/her addiction problems and prevent relapse or continued use? What severity of problems and further distress will potentially continue or reappear, if the pt is not successfully engaged in treatment at this time? What is the pt s ability to remain abstinent based on history? Awareness of relapse triggers? What is the current level of craving and how successfully can they cope with this?
16 *ITR Description of Dimension 5: Relapse Prevention Low: Recognizes onset signs; uses coping skills with CD or psychiatric problems Medium: Limited awareness of relapse triggers or onset signs High: Beliefs problematic re: continued CD despite CD attendance; revisions in treatment plan; unable to recognize relapse triggers or onset signs, or recognize and employ coping skills
17 Dimension 6: Recovery Environment Are there dangerous family, peers, school, or work conditions threatening treatment engagement and success? Does the pt have supportive friendships, financial, educational, or vocational resources to improve the likelihood of successful treatment? Are there barriers to accessing treatment such as transportation or childcare responsibilities? Are there legal, vocational, social service agency or criminal justice mandates that may enhance motivation (external) for engagement into treatment?
18 *ITR Description of Dimension 6: Recovery Environment Low: Supportive recovery environment with accessible MH, CD support Medium: Moderately supportive with problematic access to MH, CD support High: Environment does not support recovery behaviors or efforts; resides with active substance users or abusive individuals
19 Key Factors To Consider for Utilization Review GOAL: Most appropriate level of care based on medical necessity as evidenced in the ITR and PCP Objectives: Identify components in the ITR that will support medical necessity for the service Utilize PCP to determine the clinical picture of recipient needs in a comprehensive manner

21 Adolescent Levels of Care
22 Adolescent Levels of Care The following description of services follow the Continuum of Care for Adolescent Recipients. The ASAM Level is described and specifies the clinical components necessary to address the severity of dysfunction noted in the Assessment Dimensions (D1-6). The relevant Service Definition follows and defines required components of the service.
23 Level I - Outpatient Services Organized, non-residential services designed to treat the individual s assessed level of illness severity and to achieve permanent changes in an individual s substance using behavior. Services provided at fewer than 9 contact hours per week under a defined set of policies and procedures. Services may include: Intensive In-Home Services, Mutisystemic Therapy
24 Intensive In-Home Services Intensive In-Home service is a team approach designed to address the identified needs of children and adolescents, who due to serious and chronic symptoms of an emotional, behavioral, and/or substance use disorder are unable to remain stable in the community without intensive intervention. This service may only be provided to individuals through age 20 in Medicaid-funded services. This service is intended to; Reduce presenting psychiatric or substance abuse symptoms, Provide first responder intervention to diffuse current crisis, Ensure linkage to community services and resources, and Prevent out of home placement for the child
25 Intensive In-Home Services Possible Severity Profile of Recipient Receiving IIH with an SA Disorder D-1 Low D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Low-Medium D-3 Low-Medium D-6 Low-Medium NOTES: 1. IIH does not precisely fit in the ASAM continuum in terms of level of care. It technically would fall between L-I and L- II IIH is most often used to preserve family stability, build on strengths and to help the child stay in the home and the community. 3. If an evidence-based model such as Brief Strategic Family Therapy, Multidimensional Family Therapy or Functional Family Therapy are utilized in the IIH infrastructure, D-3 may be medium to high and D-6 may be medium to high. 4. IIH may be the step down service for recipients re-entering the community from a residential service. 5. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. DSS) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
26 Multisystemic Therapy (MST) Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is time-limited 24/7 evidenced-based intensive intervention provided through a team approach to youth and their families. The practice model is designed specifically for youth generally between the ages 7 through 17 who have antisocial, aggressive/violent behaviors, are at risk of out-of-home placement due to delinquency and/or; adjudicated youth returning from out-of-home placement and/or; chronic or violent juvenile offenders, and/or youth with serious emotional disturbances or abusing substances and their families.
27 Multisystemic Therapy (MST) Possible Severity Profile of Recipient Receiving MST (SA) D-1 Low D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Low-Medium D-3 Low-Medium D-6 Low-Medium Notes: 1. MST does not precisely fit in the ASAM continuum in terms of level of care. It technically would fall between L-I and L- II MST would be more effective with low to medium in D-4, -5 or Juvenile justice involvement may be present. 4. MST may be used to preserve family stability, build on strengths and to help the child stay in the home and the community. 5. MST may be the step down service for recipients re-entering the community from a residential service. 6. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. juvenile justice, DSS, etc.) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
28 ASAM Level II.1- Intensive Outpatient Treatment Generally provided at least 6 hours of structured programming per week, consisting primarily of counseling and education about alcohol and other drug problems. Six hours per week will be too few for many adolescents who meet specifications for Level II.1. The need for psychiatric and medical services are addressed through consultation and referral arrangements. IOP differs from partial hospitalization (Level II.5) programs in the intensity of clinical services that are directly available.
29 Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Treatment (SAIOP) SAIOP consists of structured individual and group addiction activities and services that are provided at an outpatient program designed to assist adolescent recipients to begin recovery and learn skills for recovery maintenance. The program is offered at least three (3) hours per day at least three (3) days per week with no more than two consecutive days between offered services, and distinguishes between those individuals needing no more than 19 hours per week of structured services per week (ASAM Level II.1). The recipient must be in attendance for a minimum of three (3) hours per day in order to bill this service.
30 SAIOP Possible Severity Profile of Recipient Receiving SAIOP D-1 Low D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Low-Medium D-3 Low-Medium D-6 Low-Medium Notes: 1. Recipient has external supports (e.g. family, court counselor) to assist with keeping appointments. 2. The adolescent requires structured therapy and a programmatic milieu to promote progress through the stages of change. 3. At risk for relapse without frequent outpatient monitoring and unable to avoid continued use/relapse without moderate treatment support. 4. SAIOP services can be an effective service for recipients who are in a safe, structured 24-hour living environment, particularly if D-5 and D-6 are high (e.g. halfway house/supervised living). 5. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. DSS) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
31 Child & Adolescent Day Treatment Day Treatment is a structured treatment service in a licensed facility for children or adolescents and their families that builds on strengths and addresses identified needs. It is available for children 5 to 17 years of age (20 or younger for those who are eligible for Medicaid). This medically necessary service directly addresses the child s diagnostic and clinical needs, which are evidenced by the presence of a diagnosable mental, behavioral, and/or emotional disturbance (as defined by the DSM-IV-TR and its successors), with symptoms and effects documented in a comprehensive clinical assessment and the Person Centered Plan. This service is designed to serve children who, as a result of their mental health and/or substance abuse treatment needs, are unable to benefit from participation in academic or vocational services at a developmentally appropriate level in a traditional school or work setting.
32 Child & Adolescent Day Treatment Possible Severity Profile of Recipient Receiving C & A Day Treatment D-1 Low D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Low-Medium D-3 Medium D-6 Low-Medium Notes: 1. The Day treatment program must be able to address the substance related disorder of the recipient. 2. Higher level of severity for D Day Treatment services can be an effective service for recipients who are in a safe, structured 24-hour living environment, particularly if D-5 and D-6 are high (e.g. halfway house/supervised living or child s home). 4. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. DSS) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
33 ASAM Level II.5-Partial Hospitalization Partial hospitalization programs generally feature 20 or more hours of clinically intensive programming per week, as well as daily or near-daily contact, as specified in the patient s treatment plan. Often have direct access to or close referral relationship with psychiatric, medical and lab services.
34 Partial Hospitalization Partial Hospitalization is a short-term service for children experiencing acute mental illness (including co-occurring), which provides a broad range of intensive therapeutic approaches. This service is designed to prevent hospitalization or to serve as an interim step for those leaving an inpatient facility.
35 Partial Hospitalization (PH) Possible Severity Profile of Recipient Receiving PH Services D-1 Low-Medium D-4 Medium-High D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Medium-High D-3 Medium-High D-6 Medium Notes: 1. Due to PH having a medical component, recipients able tolerate mild withdrawal symptoms. 2. Recipient requires structured therapy and a programmatic milieu to promote progress through stages of change. 3. Recipient has such poor skills in coping with and interrupting SA problems and avoiding or limiting relapse that the near daily structure offered by PH is needed to prevent or arrest significant deterioration in function. 4. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. DSS) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
36 ASAM Level III.1 Clinically Managed Low-Intensity Residential Services Often provided in a halfway house or group home. Program offers at least 5 hours a week of low intensity treatment of substance-related disorders Treatment is directed toward applying recovery skills, preventing relapse, improving social functioning and ability for self-care, promoting personal responsibility, developing a social network supportive of recovery and reintegrating the individual into school, work and family life.

37 Child Residential Level II Possible Severity Profile for Halfway House Placement (L-III.1) D-1 Low/Stable D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Medium-High D-3 Low-Medium D-6 Medium-High Notes: 1. The recipient s emotional, behavioral and/or cognitive condition the need for practice of recovery skills in a controlled environment. 2. The recipient is at risk for dangerous consequences because of the lack of a stable living environment (e.g. risk of assault). 3. The recipient is open to recovery but requires 24-hour supervision to promote the stages of change. 4. When multiple services are provided, coordination between service providers and other agencies (e.g. DSS) should be reflected in the PCP and through the Child and Family Team process.
38 +Supervised Living (Halfway House) Possible Severity Profile for Halfway House Placement (L-III.1) D-1 Low/Stable D-4 Low-Medium D-2 Low/Stable D-5 Medium-High D-3 Low-Medium D-6 Medium-High Notes: Can be an effective service for recipients who need a safe, structured 24- hour living environment while participating in SAIOP/Day Treatment services. + = Non-Medicaid Billable Service

48 Adult Levels of Care
49 Adult Levels of Care The following description of services follow the Continuum of Care for Adult Recipients. The ASAM Level is described and specifies the clinical components necessary to address the severity of dysfunction noted in the Assessment Dimensions. The relevant Service Definition follows and defines required components of the service.
50 ASAM Level I - Outpatient Services Organized, non-residential services designed to treat the individual s assessed level of illness severity and to achieve permanent changes in an individual s substance using behavior. Services provided at fewer than 9 contact hours per week under a defined set of policies and procedures. Services may include: Community Support Team, Opioid Treatment, Outpatient Treatment

63 ASAM Level III.3 - Clinically-Managed Medium-Intensity Residential Services The effects of addiction on the individual s life are so significant and the level of addiction-related impairment is so great that outpatient motivational strategies alone are not feasible or effective. Programming and staffing in this level of care is capable of addressing slightly more severe medical or emotional, cognitive, and/or behavioral problems. A structured recovery environment is combined with mediumintensity professional clinical services to support and promote recovery. Case management activities work towards networking residents into community-based ancillary or wrap-around services.
64 ASAM Level III.5 - Clinically-Managed High- Intensity Residential Services Provides a highly structured recovery environment in combination with medium-to-high intensity professional clinical services. Programs are characterized by reliance on the treatment community as a therapeutic agent for clients whose lives are characterized by chaotic, unsupportive and often abusive interpersonal relationships, extensive treatment and criminal justice histories, little or no work history or educational experience, and/or anti-social value systems. Treatment is specific to maintaining abstinence & preventing relapse while vigorously promoting personal responsibility and positive character change in an intense therapeutic milieu.
