What is a Drug and Alcohol Evaluation?

A Drug and Alcohol Evaluation is a structured assessment designed to understand the extent and nature of a person’s substance use. The evaluation delves into the individual’s medical history, psychological profile, and social circumstances, highlighting the patterns of drug and alcohol use and their implications on health and lifestyle.

How Does a Drug and Alcohol Evaluation Work?

During the evaluation, our staff conducts a thorough interview with the individual, often supplemented with standardized questionnaires and tests. These instruments help in identifying the severity of substance abuse, the presence of any mental health disorders, and the level of physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. The gathered information is crucial in formulating an individualized treatment plan aimed at effective recovery.

When is a Substance Use Evaluation Necessary?

Substance abuse evaluations are mandatory in various scenarios, like after DUI arrests, during legal proceedings related to child custody, or as part of employment requirements. Additionally, these evaluations are vital for individuals who acknowledge their substance use problems and seek help to overcome their dependence.

Who Conducts My Drug or Alcohol Evaluation?

Our qualified and licensed professionals such as counselors, psychologists, social workers, or addiction specialists usually conduct the Drug and Alcohol Evaluations. Our staff are licensed and possess the requisite knowledge, skills, and experience to administer, interpret, and analyze the results of the evaluation proficiently.
