COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION PROGRAM

Not everyone experiencing problems with compulsive habits needs full residential addiction treatment.  In many cases, undiagnosed psychological issues can lead to self-medication with drugs, alcohol, sex, food, or gambling.  Our evaluation program was created to discover any underlying psychological issues that might be contributing to the problems you’re experiencing.  This is an effective program for adolescents, young adults, and adults.  If you’re concerned about your compulsive habits but unsure which treatment option is best for you, our evaluation program will give you the answers you seek!

You will receive:

  • A thorough psychological, physical, and neurological assessment
  • A professionally prepared report and recommendations for treatment
  • A consultation to discuss the results
