Substance abuse is one of the biggest public health challenges in the U.S.. If you or a family member are experiencing problems with alcohol or drugs, the first step towards recovery is a comprehensive substance abuse assessment. This assessment can determine what you need and link you to the appropriate level of treatment. Specialized assessments which include DOT or SAP required evaluations are also available.

If you are in legal difficulties with a DUI or probation, please check on the type of substance abuse assessment needed as requirements can vary greatly by county or state.
