What should I expect in an evaluation?

An evaluation for a mental illness  and/or substance use disorder is designed to help determine the best treatment options based on your current behavioral patterns or needs.  It is an open, honest dialogue between you and the behavioral health professional.

Are you under 21 and need support?
