New Directions provides professional drug and alcohol assessments and evaluations in-person, online or by phone for individuals in 48 States.
A general drug & alcohol assessment is often required when a prescription medication or street drug and/or alcohol are part of the following circumstances:
- A DUI / DWI arrest or charge where the driver was charged with impairment from drug use or both drug and alcohol use
- Other Court related charges such as: drug possession or paraphernalia charges, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, domestic violence, trespassing
- 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 drugs and/or alcohol and you would like an assessment
New Directions provides general drug and alcohol 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.
Chemical alcohol and drug tests (e.g. urine drug test or other tests) may be requested as part of your assessment. Necessity is determined on a case-by-case basis by your evaluator or the requesting authority. If a test is appropriate and you are not present in our office, use of a local independent lab on a walk-in basis is recommended. Chemical testing fees are the sole responsibility of the client if you cannot be present in our office at the time of the assessment.
