Note: Some agencies provide less intensive day programs (for example, reporting centers) that are not designed to include service planning. These agencies have the option to complete only: PA-JJD 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, and 12.
When an agency providing PA-JJD offers treatment for youth with mental health or substance use conditions, the agency should also complete COA’s standards for: (1) Outpatient Mental Health Services (PA-MH), or (2) Services for Substance Use Conditions (PA-SA), as appropriate.
The agency's services will be reviewed and matched with the most appropriate Service Standard, regardless of the population served. When an agency operates a program where the service population includes, but is not limited to, youth involved with the juvenile justice system, it may be more appropriate to complete another Service Standard, such as Day Treatment Services (PA-DTX) or Social Development and Enrichment Services for Children and Youth (PA-SDE).
