a group in rehab after learning how drug and alcohol assessments workAt Assess with Guidance, we pride ourselves on providing comprehensive substance abuse and mental health assessments to individuals seeking to overcome behavioral health challenges. We understand that the assessment process can be overwhelming, which is why we have developed a streamlined process to make it as easy as possible for our clients.

Here is how the process works:

Step 1: Patient calls in for an assessment

The first step is for the patient to call in to schedule an assessment with one of our qualified clinicians. During the initial call, a pre-screen will be completed to determine if the patient is appropriate for an assessment or if they require more immediate or emergent assistance.

Step 2: Patient comes in for assessment and signs consents

If it is determined that an assessment is appropriate, the patient will come in for the assessment and sign consents. Our team of clinicians is dedicated to creating a safe and welcoming environment where our clients can feel comfortable sharing their experiences and challenges.

Step 3: Clinician conducts the assessment

The clinician will conduct a comprehensive assessment that includes a biopsychosocial evaluation, Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale, and Brief Addiction Monitor scale. This process helps to determine the extent of the individual’s behavioral health needs and identify the appropriate treatment plan.

Step 4: Clinician provides treatment recommendations

Based on the results of the assessment process, the clinician will provide recommendations for treatment. Our team of clinicians understands that each individual is unique, and we work closely with our clients to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their specific needs.

Step 5: Clinician facilitates linkage to appropriate resources

Our team of clinicians is dedicated to helping our clients overcome addiction and mental health challenges and get the support they need. That’s why we facilitate the linkage between our clients and appropriate appropriate resources to ensure that they receive the highest quality of care.

Step 6: In-person and telehealth assessments available

While we encourage our clients to complete assessments in person, we understand that this may not always be possible. That’s why we also offer telehealth services for clients who are unable to come into the office for their assessment.
