The First Step Towards Addiction Treatment: Assessment
Each patient’s journey towards recovery begins with a comprehensive medical and pyscho-social assessment. These usually last three to five days and are designed to determine if someone has a substance use disorder. Once the assessment is completed we review the findings with you and your family members and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
Our assessment explores:
immediate physical and vital signs to determine whether transfer to a higher level of care, such as a hospital, is necessary.
blood and urine screenings, medical histories, and addiction assessments to determine whether medical detoxification treatment within Landmark’s treatment center is necessary.
additional testing to determine whether anti-craving medication will be needed.
psychosocial analysis and history of substance use to determine appropriate level of treatment, whether inpatient at Landmark, or outpatient at a trusted local partner.
evaluation for the existence of any co-occurring diagnoses and whether additional medication or treatment protocols will be necessary.
