I offer substance use evaluations for individuals who are concerned about their substance use or starting to think their substance use may be problematic.
- a clinical interview
- self-report measures
- collateral report from other treatment providers and/or family members
- completion of a toxicology screen
The purpose of an evaluation is to assess the presence and severity of a substance use disorder and to provide an expert opinion regarding treatment recommendations based on this assessment. Evaluations typically take about 2.5 to 3 hours to complete.
