Meridian Behavioral Health provides confidential Chemical Health Assessments at all of our outpatient programs by appointment. This service is a one visit service used to determine diagnosis, recommendation, and/or referral for individuals having concerns regarding their substance use. A licensed alcohol and drug counselor (LADC) performs a substance abuse disorder assessment.

The assessment details the patient’s substance use history, previous treatment history, legal history, family of origin history, education and employment status, relationships history, psychiatric treatment history, and cultural background. It also assesses the patient's current physical health, current mental status, and readiness for change, recovery environment, learning style, personal strengths and resources, and potential barriers to recovery. This information allows for the LADC to diagnose, make appropriate recommendation(s) and/or referrals for the individual.
