Assessment Driven Treatment Placement: What Can We Learn From the Justice System?
The Justice system has, for over 30 years, successfully used a simple set of assessment tools and criteria to match level of service with each individual client. Problem Solving Court’s (Drug Courts) took this idea to a new level with more comprehensive tools to best serve their population. Over the past 15 years, Drug Courts claim significantly higher long-term outcomes than most treatment programs due to a number of evidence based practices, including assessment-driven treatment placement. This presentation will detail the placement criteria and give simple suggestions to industry professionals.
Meetings for SOAP are held at the La Jolla Village Square’s Community Room. The Room is located on the lower level of the shopping Center next to the AMC Movie Theater’s box office.
There are two areas to park: outdoors and underground. The outdoor parking can get rather full. We suggest that you aim for the indoor covered parking which is usually wide open during our meeting hours, plus it is cooler in the summer and dry during rainy season. Access to the underground parking is slightly tricky the first time you go, yet if you know where to look, it’s relatively easy. Once you enter the shopping center from Nobel Drive you will notice California Pizza Kitchen on your left and Islands Restaurant on your right. Just past Islands you will notice a right turn lane for people who are heading to Ralphs and Trader Joes. Don’t turn there, keep going straight. In about 30 feet and you will see a ramp to the right leading down to the lower lot. There will be a sign at the entrance to this ramp that clearly lets you know that this is the path to the additional underground parking. Just follow it down all the way to the far end where you will see a glass door entrance to the shopping center with a sign for the AMC Theater. That’s your entrance to the mall that leads to the Community Room which can be found immediately to the right of the AMC Movie Theater’s box office.
