Substance Abuse Evaluations

How do I know if I need treatment for substance abuse?

A simple but in-depth Substance Abuse Evaluation can determine the severity of any substance abuse problem. A typical assessment at Colonial Clinic lasts two hours. The need for outpatient, inpatient, mental health treatment, or no treatment at all can be easily determined with a professional evaluation.

What to expect from a substance abuse evaluation

Abuse or addiction to substances, including alcohol, can be devastating for an individual. Substance abuse wreaks havoc on a person’s physical health and emotional stability. It can also damage relationships with family and friends, which highlights the need for family counseling.

In an evaluation, counselors at Colonial Clinic will:

  • determine if someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol
  • determine the extent of substance abuse or addiction
  • identify any co-occurring conditions (such as mental health conditions)
  • recommend a treatment plan
