Comprehensive Evaluation for Addiction at Providence Treatment

Assessing whether a person has a substance use disorder requires a multimodal and comprehensive perspective on the bio-psychosocial and spiritual spheres of the client’s life. To this end, Providence Treatment conducts a comprehensive evaluation for professional individuals and their families. We use these assessments to determine their addiction diagnosis and recommended treatment going forward, if any.

We utilize current theory and laboratory toxicology studies in conjunction with the patient’s narrative to determine an alcohol or drug addiction.

Comprehensive Addiction Evaluations: Understanding the Process

Whether you came to us on the recommendation of the courts, a lawyer, a school/training program, or family member, prospective clients first meet with our CEO Dr. Heran, who has more than 25 years of experience working with individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders. Following this meeting, the client will meet with a primary therapist and other Providence Treatment staff members to determine the diagnosis as well as the appropriate level of care.

In the course of a two-day comprehensive evaluation for addiction, clients join groups at the treatment center. These groups expose them to other clients making progress in their recovery. During this time, we also contact (with the client’s written permission) collateral sources to learn more about your behaviors and actions. The following individuals may be considered sources:

  • Family members
  • Spouses
  • Colleagues
  • Friends

Once we complete the comprehensive evaluation, we will recommend an appropriate treatment plan and level of support moving forward. This could include the following:

We determine this by following the level of care guidelines from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and the feedback from your Providence Treatment assessment team. For more information on our comprehensive evaluation process, call 866-622-6211.
