A drug and alcohol addiction assessment will typically be done through a rehabilitation center, or done online through a self-assessment.

Will an addiction assessment help narrow down the search for a treatment center?

Yes, an addiction assessment process will help an addict or their family narrow down the search for a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. The main purpose of an assessment is to assist with weeding out programs that are not quite suitable or do not offer everything the person is looking for. Through a successful assessment, an addict can find the best drug treatment options available to them in Connecticut or in neighboring states.
