Yamhill County Family & Youth Programs receives referrals from Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Alcohol and other Drug Screening Specialists (ADSS) to assess the level of care needed for individuals who have been cited with Driving While Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII). Youth are then provided either DUII Education or DUII Treatment by their assigned treatment team. Regular status updates are provided to the ADSS to indicate the youth’s progress. If a higher level of care is needed in order to maintain safety of the client and others, our counselors discuss their recommendations with the client and complete referrals to the appropriate programs.
Yamhill County Family & Youth Programs receives referrals from the juvenile justice system for youth who have been cited with a Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP). Youth of all ages meet with a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC) to determine their level of care. We use the American Society of Addictions Medicine (ASAM) criteria with all of our assessments to make this determination. The levels of care that we provide range from early intervention and education, to intensive outpatient care. The amount and frequency of services recommended increases with the higher levels of care. We also coordinate with the referring juvenile probation officer and other involved agencies in order to help youth successfully complete their requirements and meet their treatment goals.
