Overview

NYS OASAS, in partnership with National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASAColumbia), developed the Level of Care for Alcohol and Drug Treatment Referral (LOCADTR) 3.0, a web-based tool, to assist substance abuse treatment providers, Medicaid Managed Care plans, and other referral sources in determining the most appropriate level of care (LOC) for a client with a substance use disorder and/or problem gambling disorder. This tool enables the referral source to identify the most appropriate treatment setting closest to the client's community. 

NYS OASAS, working in collaboration with the NYS Department of Health, is using the Health Commerce System (HCS) to access and support LOCADTR tools. The HCS houses hundreds of web-based applications for the State of New York. It is highly secure and well-supported.
