Screening & Assessment

If you are unsure about the level of care you require, you should seek out a personalized Screening and Assessment. An assessment is simply a conversation led by a professional counselor with the individual and/or their loves ones, to help determine if a substance use disorder is present or there is a high risk of developing a substance use disorder. Assessments help us identify which options are best for that individual. Counselors employed in OASAS-certified outpatient program can complete an assessment, talk through your options, and make recommendations for the appropriate course of treatment.

If you think you might have a problem but you're not sure, talk to your doctor. You can also call the HOPEline at 1-877-8-HOPENY, Operators provide three referrals to assessment services in your area.
