Florida Assessment/evaluation For Drug And Alcohol Addiction

A drug or alcohol addiction assessment is a specific process designed to figure out the best course of treatment for a specific individual. There are many things to consider when one struggling with addiction, such as: what substance they are addicted to, how long they have been using, the frequency and amount they are using, their age, etc. Many factors must be taken into consideration in order to make an informed decision about addiction treatment.

When looking for drug and alcohol addiction assessment and evaluation services, the state of Florida has many options to choose from which are spread all over the state that will help point you in the right direction.

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.
