ASSESSMENT

11-2-11.jpg

In order to understand the needs of each individual client, we begin with an assessment. This consists of a questionnaire, a clinical interview with a therapist, and a urine drug screen. The therapist then develops the individual treatment plan for each client.

The therapist's recommendations are discussed with the client, who also receives a copy of the Treatment Plan/Admission Contract. The assessment process is ongoing throughout the course of treatment and adjustments are made as the client progresses.

Assessment appointments are available at the Main Office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and at the Satellite Office on Tuesday and Thursday.

Three years ago I came in here for an assessment. The counselor told me I was an alcoholic and needed treatment. I told him he didn’t know what he was talking about and walked out. Now I am back and I told him he was right the first time and I want help.
