Substance Abuse Evaluation

Your Substance Abuse Evaluation & What to Know

Court Ordered or Attorney Recommended

The goal of the process is to assess whether or not an your alcohol and/or drug use is a problem. There are three categories of alcohol and drug use: social use, abuse, and dependence.  Once your drug and alcohol evaluation is complete, we care and will help you determine the best course of treatment to assure a positive future based on your unique history, current situation, strengths, and current needs. 

This can actually be a great step for you at a difficult time in your life because it provides professional treatment recommendations that can assist you in obtaining education and therapy around any alcohol and/or drug issues. To obtain the most benefit from a Substance Abuse Evaluation, take time to come to terms about why you are coming in, be completely honest, and plan to follow through on the recommendations.

What to Bring and What to Expect

Once you’ve completed your paper work online, you can expect to be in the office for approximately an hour. You may want to block a little extra time off of your schedule to contend with traffic, etc.  A Substance Abuse Evaluation can be a very positive experience. It provides a brief intervention that educates you and whomever you have as support in your life on the nature and extent of any alcohol and/or drug problem.
