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 drug or alcohol evaluation at Colonial Clinic lasts two hours. The need for outpatient, inpatient, mental health treatment, or no treatment at all can be easily determined with our professional assessment.

What to Expect from a Substance Abuse Evaluation

Abuse of 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.
