WAC 388-877A-0140

Outpatient mental health services—Brief intervention treatment.

Brief intervention treatment services are solution-focused and outcome-oriented cognitive and behavioral interventions, intended to resolve situational disturbances. These services do not require long term treatment, and do not include ongoing care, maintenance, or monitoring of the individual's current level of function or assistance with self-care or life skills training.
(1) An agency providing brief intervention treatment services to individuals must meet the individual service plan requirements in WAC 388-877-0620 and ensure the individual service plan identifies a course of treatment to be completed in six months or less.
(2) The additional assessment and individual service plan requirements in WAC 388-877A-0130 and 388-877A-0135 do not apply to brief intervention treatment.
(3) An individual may move from brief intervention treatment to longer term outpatient mental health services at any time.
