Need to arrange a Drug and Alcohol Evaluation for yourself?
If you’ve been told you need a drug or alcohol evaluation, you probably have a LOT on your mind right now. If you’ve never been evaluated before, you’re no doubt wondering how long it will take, what it will involve, and who else will be told the results. (You can find all that out on the Evaluation Information Page, incidentally.)
Even if you know the process, it’s still – let’s be honest – a nerve-wracking time. With so much uncertainty around you, you want to feel confident that the person you choose to assess you:
- Is fair, impartial, and genuinely has your best interests at heart
- Will move you through the evaluation process quickly and efficiently, but without ever forgetting that they’re assessing a human being, not just a case number
- Is prepared to walk you step-by-step through the assessment without judging you or pointing fingers at any stage – regardless of the eventual results
You have a good reason for getting this assessment done
It might sound strange to put it in those terms (especially if you’ve found yourself dreading it). But the reality is, this drug and alcohol evaluation is the next step to getting you what you want, whether that’s:
- Returning to work
- Retaining or regaining custody of your child
- Satisfying the courts that you’ve genuinely changed
You might have just finished up a treatment program; or this substance abuse evaluation might be your first step in getting the right treatment for you.
Either way, the piece of paper you walk away with when the assessment is over has the power to affect your life from this point forward. So you want to pick the right person to evaluate you.
