Vetting Programs

Vetting of Local Programs and Community Resources for Enhanced Care Options

The goal of Treatment Placement Specialists® is to assist professionals in the effort to ensure that patients or clients who need more intensive services are provided all of the resources they need to make an informed treatment decision that best suits their needs. Often times, behavioral health professionals need a partner to take the time to vet local and national programs and determine if they are credible and effective in their providing of treatment.

Our vetting process includes one of our Treatment Placement Specialists® personally visiting the facility and seeking answer to the following questions:

  • What does the program specialize in?
  • When you say you specialize in certain treatment modalities, are their specifics tracks for those?
  • How many groups are there each day?
  • How many people per therapy group?
  • How many 1:1 sessions per week?
  • What credentials do the therapists/group facilitators have at your treatment center?
  • Is family integrated into the programming? If so, what does that entail?
  • Do you have a continuing care component?
  • What insurance is accepted? What happens when insurance stops paying?
