What to Expect From Your Substance Abuse Evaluation
Medical symptoms and history
Our rehabilitation team of experts will review physical illnesses that are independent of or related to substance abuse.
What is the root of the substance abuse? Our team will proceed with a comprehensive interview that helps the individual understand the severity of his/her illness and commit to receiving help if the disorder is present. Components of the data gathered during the interview may include information on prior treatments, substances used, prior efforts to quit, effects of use and all associated problems. The negative impact substance use has had on relationships, work, studies, finances, personal health or safety, and overall goal achievement will also be reviewed.
