What is a CLIP Administration?

The CLIP Administration is the central location in the State of Washington that receives all voluntary and involuntary treatment referrals of children and adolescents for the four CLIP programs.  Before a referral is sent to the CLIP Administration, the guardian and community treatment providers must go through a local process and obtain approval from the local Behavioral Health Organizations (BHO).  Each BHO has a process where guardians, mental health teams, school representatives, and support members present their case to the local committee for approval.
