Screening is designed to provide on and off site screening and crisis stabilization services, 24-hours per day, 365 days per year, in every geographic area in the State of New Jersey. The mode of stabilization will depend on the seriousness of the impairment, degree of potential dangerousness and the availability of appropriate services. The treatment will be as close to the individual's home as circumstances permit. Purpose The purposes of the Screening and Screening Outreach Program are as follows: 1. To provide clinical assessment and crisis stabilization in the least restrictive clinically appropriate setting, as close to the individual's home as possible; 2. To provide, at a minimum, outreach to individuals who may need involuntary commitment and are unable or unwilling to come in to the screening center as stipulated in P.L. 1987, c.116; 3. To expand outreach to include other crisis and emergency situations whenever possible; 4. To assure referral and linkage which is voluntary in nature to persons provided screening and/or screening outreach services to appropriate mental health and social services; 5. To coordinate access, where appropriate, to the publicly affiliated acute care psychiatric resources serving a designated geographic area, that is, acute partial care, crisis house, voluntary inpatient services.
