A substance use assessment is a thorough evaluation conducted by a licensed chemical dependency counselor. It is designed to examine the person's use or behaviors and determine the presence or absence of a substance use problem and provide recommended levels of treatment if needed.
Our licensed chemical dependency counselors (LCDC) work with you in a non-judgmental interview that allows you to share your concerns and details of your history and use. At the end of that interview options are explored and if agreed upon a plan to address the substance use or behaviors is established.
