You must ensure that the consumer is benefiting from treatment. If the consumer is participating in post-acute rehabilitation services, then you are a member of an interdisciplinary team (IDT) and must follow the consumer’s progress through treatment-related team meetings. If you cannot physically attend team meetings, consider teleconferencing, asking another counselor who is familiar with the consumer to attend the meetings, or ask the liaison counselor to attend the meetings.

When a rehabilitation treatment is not leading to increased independence, work with other members of the IDT and consider making appropriate modifications. When this is not possible, you may discontinue sponsorship of the treatment.

When complex issues evolve and treatment providers are distant from your office, you may request that the CRS liaison counselor for the provider be present at a particular meeting.
