What is an Addiction Assessment?

An addiction assessment is a process of evaluating an individual’s relationship with a substance or behavior to determine the presence of addiction. The assessment involves gathering information about an individual’s history of substance use, physical and mental health, family history, and other factors that may contribute to the development of addiction.

The goal of the assessment is to diagnose the presence of addiction and to determine the severity of the problem. This information is then used to develop an individualized treatment plan to help the person overcome their addiction and achieve lasting recovery.
