The Bureau of Drug & Alcohol Programs requires the Single County Authority to provide the three primary functions of case management which are screening, assessment, and Intensive Case Management (ICM). The function of screening involves the evaluation regarding the need for a referral to emergent care including, detoxification, prenatal, perinatal, and psychiatric services. Assessment includes the activities of Level of Care assessment and placement determination, Level of Case Management determination, and referral. Referrals are made for all levels of care: detoxification, residential rehabilitation, halfway house, and outpatient services. The SCA then authorizes payment of the needed services. ICM includes the activities of completion of the Inventory of Support Services, service planning, and discharge. The underlying principle of ICM services is to increase an individual's level of self-sufficiency based on the client's needs. The primary skills of ICM are engagement, assessing client's strengths and needs, service planning, and goal setting, linking, monitoring, advocacy, coaching and disengagement.
