What is a chemical dependency assessment?

A chemical dependency assessment is an evaluation of a person's alcohol and drug use. A person meets with a mental health professional for an interview. The purpose is to determine if a person has a serious alcohol or drug problem and to make recommendations based upon information gathered during the assessment process.

What is involved in a Chemical Health Assessment?

Chemical Health Assessments require a face-to-face interview between you and a qualified medical professional. During the interview, the professional will ask about the symptoms such as withdrawal, building a tolerence to a drug, or problems related to substance use. The professional will also learn about your mental health, physical health, current living environment, and how stable the person's life is. The professional will want to know the extent of problems your alcohol and/or drug use has caused.

  4. Provide contact information for “collateral contacts,” which are the people that need to be involved in the assessment.
