What is an assessment? The purpose of an assessment is to help determine if an individual has a Substance Use Disorder. During the assessment, the counselor will discuss your personal history, family, and your relationship with alcohol and other drugs. The counselor will work with you to determine an appropriate recommendation.
Why do I need an assessment? There are many reasons people seek an assessment. Many of our clients are dealing with DUI's or other legal matters, and plan to use the assessment for court. Others obtain assessments so they can take the first step towards recovery.
What should I expect? A typical assessment lasts between an hour and a half to two hours. The appointment will begin with some questionnaires and an urinalysis, followed by a one on one conversation with one of our counselors.
How can I sign up? To sign up for an assessment, you can come to our office to sign up in person, or click on the Intake Paperwork link below to fill out the forms and contact us to arrange payment and schedule an appointment. PLEASE NOTE: If you have a pending court case, we need to have your DCH (defendant case history). You can get this no-cost at the 4th floor of the District Court or order online through Washington State Patrol at a cost of $11.00.
