An assessment is a comprehensive view of an individual focusing on their alcohol and other drug use. An assessment also surveys a client’s emotional/psychiatric background, family/social life, legal history, schooling, employment, and medical history in relation to their alcohol and other drug use. Based on the assessment, an individual is given a plan to address any issues/concerns that came to light during the assessment.

The RISE Program is designed for youth and young adults ages 12-25 that are struggling with substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental health concerns.
