What assessment will be used to determine if a youth qualifies for placement in a Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP) and who will conduct the assessment?

The Family First Act requires an independent assessment to determine the necessity of placement in a QRTP. The assessment has to be conducted by a third party clinician who is not affiliated with the agency or the placement provider.

QRTPs have not been implemented in Georgia so the assessment tool and process has not been established.
