Assessment/Evaluation

All patients referred to Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug Services, Inc. undergo an extensive and comprehensive assessment/evaluation. The results of this assessment should provide us with an accurate picture of the extent and progression of the problem. Once we have determined this, we are now better able to discuss with the patient and family the recommended level of treatment that will hopefully return the user to a drug and/or alcohol free lifestyle. We place a special emphasis on the importance of the assessment/evaluation, because we believe the assignment of a patient to the most-appropriate level of care is critical in their recovery.
