Will addiction assessments force a person to go to treatment?

No, an addiction assessment will not force a person to attend a drug rehabilitation center. Assessments are primarily used to assist in determining if a substance abuse disorder is present, and if so what type of rehabilitation is available to treat the problem. Addiction assessments are not interventions, nor will it try to conduct an intervention, but will help an addict understand the importance of receiving help for their addiction or drug dependency problems.
