A drug and alcohol assessment is a tool used by a trained professional to help determine if an individual has a drug or alcohol addiction, assess the extent of substance use or addiction, determine if there are other co-occurring disorders such as a physical or mental health condition, determine a diagnosis, and develop treatment recommendations. At Harmony Bay Wellness we offer an extensive and thorough drug and alcohol assessment along with appropriate and effective treatment.
What Happens During a Drug and Alcohol Assesment at Harmony Bay Wellness?
When taking part in a drug and alcohol assessment, doctors are trying to gauge the status of your addiction. Before treatment can begin, it is vital for your treatment team to know how to address your addiction. Jumping in with no knowledge of the situation could lead to unproductive treatment. We follow a process to ensure that we can properly build out a plan in order to get the best possible results out of your recovery. Some of the early steps include:
- Assessment in a private setting with a caring and compassionate professional
- Assessment will include an interview and a variety of screening tools
- Development of an individualized treatment plan based on diagnosis
