Alcohol and Drug Evaluation (aka, Substance Abuse Evaluation) includes a clinical component using standardized psychosocial assessment tools, and a detailed written report describing the results. This evaluation is also known as a chemical dependence assessment/evaluation and as a substance abuse assessment/evaluation. The alcohol and drug evaluation process leads to an accurate diagnosis along with recommendations designed to help individuals make informed decisions about the next step. The Alcohol and Drug Evaluation counselor provides a preliminary diagnosis of an individual's chemical dependency and recommendations for treatment to address specific needs. This service is often used as a referral or disposition resource by the courts, Family Protective Child Protective Services (CPS), companies, schools, and other third parties. Recommendations may include addiction treatment or referrals to physical and mental health practitioners, family counselors, or other helping professionals. Our evaluation is widely accepted by local adult and/or juvenile probation offices (i.e., Collin, Dallas, and Denton & Tarrant County CSCD), the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), CPS, Lawyers, & others.
