About the Evaluation

PARS provides drug and alcohol evaluations and education for youth and adults referred by schools, courts, therapists, community agencies, and families to assist and empower them to make a healthy change. Individuals may also self-rever. The goal of the process is to assess whether or not the individual has a problem with alcohol and drug use that requires treatment. If it is determined that treatment is needed, the addictions counselor will provide professional treatment recommendations to assist the individual in obtaining education and help around their specific needs. These recommendations are personalized based on each individual's unique history, situation, strengths, and current conditions. Cost is assessed on an individual case basis and must be paid before or at the beginning of the session. The cost will be determined once the appointment is scheduled. Grand funding may be available to offset the cost of the evaluation for a minor.

What to Expect at the Evaluation

Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to complete the required paperwork. You will be given a paper questionnaire before your interview with the counselor. During the interview, you will be asked various questions relating to your physical health, mental health, legal history, social history, and usage of substances. Please bring the following documents to your first appointment:

•Photo ID (if you have one)
•Attorney, probation, or court information (if applicable)
•Parent or guardian must accompany a youth client
