Clinical Assessment for Alcoholism & Drug Addiction
If you have symptoms of a medical problem, e.g., shortness of breath, you would schedule an appointment with a physician to determine the cause of the symptoms. Alcoholism is a disease that is eminently treatable once it is diagnosed. An assessment with a qualified professional will confirm or deny the presence of the disease. Should you have any questions about your drug or alcohol use, perhaps take the self test found on our site?
If you have taken the self-survey and found that your drinking and drug use is harmful, the next step is to arrange a clinical assessment to determine whether you need treatment. No other treatment system in Washington has the breadth or length of experience in assessing drinking/drug problems. For over thirty years, we have provided no cost assessments by a caring, empathetic staff of veteran professionals. Same day appointments are available at all of our nine outpatient locations around Puget Sound. If you live farther away, simply call us and we will help you find a capable clinician. At the end of the hour long evaluation, we will give you the results of our findings and recommendations if needed. Like any health evaluation, your assessment is completely confidential, and we will release no information to anyone without your written consent.
