What is an Assessment?

This is the first step towards improving your overall well-being. An assessment is a clinical interview to determine what type of behavioral health services are most appropriate. A mastered prepared clinician will ask about current concerns as well as past medical and mental health history. If applicable, any drug and/or alcohol abuse will be assessed. Family members or a friend may be present during the assessment process, as this may be helpful for assistance and support.

This assessment is used to determine which programs or services would be most beneficial.  At Peak View, we offer a variety of program options to support mental health, substance abuse, and dual diagnosis. Our programs include inpatient, outpatient, partial programs, detox, and more. Once the assessment is complete, our clinician will consult with our Psychiatrist regarding the recommended level of care and determine the appropriate course of treatment.

How do I schedule an assessment?
