Screening Process: Court Counselors will refer all youth scoring a 3 or higher on the GAIN Short Screen, or those who may have unmet mental health/substance abuse needs as determined by the Court Counselor and Supervior to the Juvenile Court Assessment Team (Haven House). 

 Assessment Process: JAT is made up of 2 FTE licensed clinicians (1assigned to Wake Detention) who completes a single, comprehensive, individualized clinical evaluation process to assess mental health and substance abuse issues, determine eligibility for available funding sources, make recommendations, and link the juvenile court involved youth and their families to appropriate mental health and substance abuse services and supports. JAT, also, has a QP who conducts Brief Challenges in the detention center and assists the clinicians with referrals for services and supports.

Treatment Process: The comprehensive and individualized evaluation process yields better outcomes for youth and families through objective matching of youth to appropriate services and supports based on professional assessment recommendations and consumer choice. Once the youth and families engage with a treatment provider, a Child and Family Team is initiated to develop and monitor a person centered plan (PCP). The Child and Family Team meets monthly, as well as any time there is an urgent need to review/revise the PCP.
