The first step in entering treatment is typically to have a substance abuse assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to assess a person’s drug and/or alcohol use in an attempt to determine if treatment is needed, what level of care is most appropriate, which program might best meet the client’s needs, and to complete any insurance funding requirements.

We offer walk-in assessments Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. Assessments are free for those who qualify for Rule 25 funding or we offer self-pay assessments that will meet court requirements for $100. The assessment lasts about an hour and includes questions about many different areas of a person’s life. When ever possible, the Assessor also speaks to a “collateral” which is a person that can also give information about the client being assessed. A face to face meeting is preferred with the collateral although a phone conversation can serve as a substitute.

In addition, as a contracted provider, we are able to complete substance abuse assessments for:
