Participants must complete an intake assessment session with a Programs for Change counselor before attending a chemical addiction treatment program. Determining an individual’s needs is a complex process. Information from a variety of sources is gathered and reviewed by a counselor. The information may include input from family members and friends, medical providers, or possibly employers, counselors or others. The comprehensive assessment process can take up to two hours and includes: a psychological evaluation, and a life history and chemical use history to identify a variety of needs.
The intake assessment will provide recommendations and referral for improved living and treatment options, such as additional mental health, medical resources and Programs for Change when appropriate.
