General Drug & Alcohol Assessments (includes both alcohol & drug)

Requested by Court, Physician, or Self Referral

General substance abuse assessments apply to situations involving prescription medication or street drugs and/or alcohol and are appropriate in the following circumstances:

  • A DUI / DWI arrest or charge where the driver was charged with impairment from drug use or both drug and alcohol
  • Other Court related charges such as: disorderly conduct, public intoxication, domestic violence, trespassing, drug possession or paraphernalia charges
  • A general request by a physician or where the physician has concerns about abuse of a prescription medication
  • If you or someone close to you has a concern about your use of a substance and you would like an assessment

New Directions provides general substance abuse assessments in-person, online or by phone for individuals across the United States. All of our evaluators have a state license or credential to diagnose and treat substance use disorders. After you have completed your assessment your evaluator will place a professional report in your secure account, which you can view, print or download for your own purposes. Court representatives, doctors, or others can only see your report if you choose to provide it to them.
