Did you know this about drug and alcohol assessment and evaluation?

Drug and alcohol addiction assessments and evaluation are usually free services provided by state health centers and substance abuse treatment programs. It helps assess the needs of the addict to find the right treatment.

Hawaii Drug Addiction Assessments

Throughout the islands of Hawaii are numerous drug and alcohol rehab programs, and treatment services. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration site do provide directories for many of these programs, but there is no specific directory for addiction assessment services or substance abuse evaluations. Many of these types of services are offered through drug rehab centers, or through online assessment questionnaires.

Is an addiction assessment considered therapy?

An addiction assessment is not considered therapy or counseling; it is simply another tool used to assist people in finding suitable drug rehabilitation. Counselors and therapists who provide assessments will most certainly provide the help and counseling required to guide the person in the right direction for treatment. However, for professional counseling, addicts and their families should seek out the necessary resources, which is what an addiction assessment will help them locate.
