A participant may designate someone to serve as their representative in all or part of the rehabilitation process. The legal guardian or representative may be authorized to sign documents, speak on the participant’s behalf, or serve in other capacities indicated on Form 1487. The 1487 form must be completed and submitted to the CRS counselor at the time of admission. The provider must inform the participant about the consumer’s responsibilities, safety concerns, and other matters of importance. This information can be provided in a brochure, manual or fact sheet. The provider must explain all CRS program rules or house rules to the participant, and the participant or the participant’s legal guardian, or representative must consent in writing to all of the rules. The provider must have the participant sign an acknowledgement form and place it in the participant’s file. The CRS counselor may request this at any time.
