Professionals have a saying when it comes to difficult clients, “work within your competency.” If you have never worked with someone who is suicidal, refer out. If you do not feel equipped to help someone that struggles with bipolar or schizophrenia, refer out. To refer out, you need to know who you will need to have a resource list of people and resources to utilize.
This document will be regularly updated as more resources become available. Know of one that is missing? Let us know!
|Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration||SAMHSA Treatment Locator|
|Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)||Narcotics Anonymous (NA)|
|Al-Anon Family Groups||Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA)|
What resources would you add to this list?
