After calling and registering with Intake Staff, you will be given an appointment with an Addiction Clinician. This appointment gives an individual and clinician the opportunity to explore the impact of substance use on all areas of their life. The results of this assessment are used to determine the severity of the individuals use and to identify their strengths, challenges and goals. The clinician and individual will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the client’s unique situation.
