ASK A PROFESSIONAL
Finding a drug rehab that meets your needs is key to a successful recovery from drugs and alcohol. Since there are so many options, an assessment helps you understand what level of care is needed. Questions asked in an evaluation will help the addiction professional determine the correct type of treatment in terms of rehab type and duration.
Generally speaking, once ordered by the court to get an assessment done, it is usually up to the individual to ensure this is completed by the time laid out by the judge. Most counties or parishes have local or state organizations that conduct assessments the court accepts. You should set an appointment immediately. Once completed, you should coordinate with the facility that performed the evaluation and the court to ensure they know you have complied with the judge’s orders. This is not legal advice; always speak to your lawyer or public defender to answer legal questions specific to your case.
How soon you receive treatment depends on a variety of factors. These include but are not limited to bed availability, court approval, affordability, and willingness. Every individual’s situation is unique, so it is best to speak to a professional regarding the exact timeline between drug assessment and treatment.
No, when an addiction professional can see the individual, ask questions, and drug test them, they have a more accurate evaluation of the individual’s needs. Many individuals fail to disclose everything that is happening with them, and off-site interviews or questionaries make it easier for a person to downplay their drug use. Ultimately one should always do an assessment that utilizes a drug test as it will provide more accurate information about the current situation.
