If your drug or alcohol use has led to negative legal, professional, or academic consequences, you may be asked to complete a drug and alcohol assessment. Also known as a chemical or Rule 25 Assessment, you may have questions about this procedure. Learning more about it can help you make intelligent decisions when tackling your substance abuse issues.
Why Do You Need This Assessment?
A drug and alcohol assessment gives an independent evaluator the chance to find out what substances you were using as well as the impact they have had on various aspects of your life. In order to get the full picture, the assessor will ask you questions pertaining to:
- History of alcohol or drug use
- Previous drug and alcohol rehab treatment
- Any medical or mental concerns
- Support resources in your life
- Your risk of continuing to abuse substances
What a Drug And Alcohol Assessment Says About Your Future
If a person, institution, or legal entity requests that you complete a chemical health assessment, this is a strong indication that your drug and alcohol use has gotten out of control. It should serve as a wake-up call that prompts you to learn more about drug and alcohol addiction treatment as soon as possible. Intervention from caring, knowledgeable professionals may well be the lifeline that can save you from drowning in the treacherous waters of alcoholism or drug addiction.
