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.

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. Call us to set up an appointment or learn about our walk-in schdule.
