Levels of Care Criteria

How do you access substance abuse services through SEMCA?

The client must call our Access Management System (AMS) department and complete an oral screening that will take approximately 15 minutes. The number to call is 1-800-686-6543. SEMCA utilizes the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria on the Carenet web based computer system. This is the process to determine what level of care/program is recommended for a client and gathering various past histories on the client, demographic, financial and their substance abuse and mental health issues. All clients have a choice in selecting a provider that is in SEMCA's network panel that meets their needs and criteria. All clients receive medically necessary services. These clients will be issued an authorization for services once they have been approved for treatment. All clients are offered an appointment the same day as their call with the appropriate program and level of care identified. SEMCA's AMS is operational 24hours/7days a week.
