The goal of the Substance Abuse Evaluation is to assess whether or not your alcohol or drug use is a problem.
There are three categories of alcohol and drug use: social use, abuse, and dependence. Once your substance abuse evaluation is complete, we will help you determine the best course of treatment to assure a positive future based on your unique history, current situation, strengths, and current needs.
After your Substance Abuse Evaluation, if necessary, suggestions given by your counselor can help define the proper steps to treat substance use disorder. This can be an excellent step for you at a difficult time in your life because it provides professional treatment recommendations that can assist you in obtaining education and therapy around any alcohol or drug issues.
To obtain the most benefit from a Substance Abuse Evaluation, take time to understand why you are coming in, be completely honest, and plan to follow through on the recommendations. Your counselor may recommend counseling or classes to prevent future problems.
Once you’ve completed your paperwork online, you can expect to be in the office for approximately an hour. You may want to block a little extra time off of your schedule to contend with traffic, etc. Everyone goes through a tough time, but if you have behaviors and emotions causing substance abuse and it’s getting in the way of enjoying your life, we want to help.
Plan to spend a few hours with us for your evaluation, just in case. Maybe take a day or half-day off so your head’s clear, and you can focus on issues that need your attention.
We will make a copy/scan of this. This is something you must have, and there’s no workaround. We have to prove who came in for the evaluation since we must immediately forward the results to the referring authority.
Court papers, probation requirements, attorney requests, or other legal documentation includes the demographic information we need to report to your service. We will make a copy/scan of these.
We are happy to accept all credit cards and cash for your convenience. We do not take checks.
Sliding fee schedules, payment plans, late night and weekend hours make our facility available to those required to have Individual Counseling by Pinellas County authorities. We work closely with probation, city, and county officials to get you the help you need when you need it.
