This is extremely important as this allows us to dissect the issue at hand and recommend the proper level of care. We are confident that if assessment recommendations are followed, positive results most likely will occur. The great news is that your information remains confidential. Due to federal and state laws, a release of information must be signed in order for us to disclose information in most cases. The good news is that an assessment, on average, is only one hour in length. The proper level of care is critical to any type of recovery.
