An addiction assessment or evaluation will also provide the patient with the available substance abuse treatment or therapy options they can attend to help them with their addiction or drug dependency problem. An assessment is not simply a method determining there is an addiction, but it will offer treatment options to treat the addiction. This can include the type of program that will best help the individual handle their entire addiction including the physical dependency to the substances as well as the other diffiulcties that arise during substance abuse. An assessment is a good first step towards ending the drug abuse for good.
