Universal Substance Use Disorder Screenings and Warm Handoffs

Project Term: 12 months; 2017-2018
Grant Amount: $13,440

This project will help PureView Health Center implement universal substance use disorder screenings for all patients over 12-years old. Patients will be screened for substance use disorders, and if necessary, will be referred and given a warm-handoff to the health center’s behavioral health team. The project will contract with Boyd Andrew Community Services who will provide a full-time licensed addiction counselor to be housed at the health center. PureView will bill Boyd Andrew for the services of the counselor, and Boyd Andrew will invoice the health center for this position. Supervision of the counselor will be through Boyd Andrew; however, to patients, the counselor will appear to be a member of PureView’s behavioral health team.
