Guide for use:Help on this term

Substantiation does not necessarily require sufficient evidence for a successful prosecution, and does not imply that treatment or case management was, or is to be, provided. Substantiations may also include cases where there is no suitable caregiver, such as children who have been abandoned or whose parents are deceased.
