Illicit Substance Screening: Clear Documentation

Illicit Drug and Alcohol Screening in Recovery Housing > Illicit Substance Screening: Clear Documentation


Having clear documentation regarding screening protocols allow you to demonstrate your consistent implementation of the quality standards.

Keeping and maintaining documentation related to illicit drug and alcohol screenings can also help your program demonstrate that you are treating residents fairly, and that you are doing what you need to do to implement national standards for quality.  If there is ever a concern about your organization or accusation, you will be able to demonstrate your commitment to your policies through complete and accurate documentation.

Having a process that clearly outlines how you will keep track of documentation ensures that your program is implementing these national standards and that your program is maintaining appropriate documentation for program integrity.
