Used to determine the degree of addiction in an individual, drug assessments and evaluations are the first step toward creating a personalized, effective treatment plan.
At Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, alcohol and substance abuse evaluations are completed upon entrance into the program by certified addiction counselors, and treatment recommendations are based on the results of the comprehensive bio-psychosocial evaluation, scores on various standardized substance abuse screening tests, and the professional counselor’s insights and observations. Additionally, ASAM criteria are reviewed to determine the client’s psychosocial status, medical status, psychiatric status, and readiness to assume regular and active participation in the appropriate level of care.
If needed, a patient’s primary therapist or counselor are able to work directly with their lawyer or the court system in appropriate circumstances.
