FOR ADOLESCENTS & TEENS
COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT
Substance abuse, addiction and mental
health conditions can impact all areas of our lives. Therefore Embrace Recovery
& Wellness Center (ERWC) believes that an accurate and comprehensive
assessment that includes Both the teen and parents/guardians is an essential
part of the counseling process and will continue throughout our time together.
As a therapeutic event, the assessment may open doors, that until now have been
closed. This will provide valuable information for the treatment plan and
assist with determining counseling interventions. The assessment will begin
with a meeting with the adolescent and the parents or guardians to discuss the
what will occur during the assessment process, verify custody and
confidentiality will be discussed with everyone. after this is established, we
will meet with your teen to gather more specific information. The assessment
may take one to two sessions.
At Embrace Recovery & Wellness
Center we are all licensed as substance abuse professionals and therefore, able
to provide substance abuse specific assessments. Often the school, court,
diversion or probation officers order these evaluations, etc. In addition to
the clinical interview, mandated assessments also include: case management and
collaborative communication, standardized screening/testing and a
recommendation letter. If treatment is determined to be necessary, your
therapist will work with you on appropriate level of care and placement.

benefit from personalized and confidential individual therapy. We will partner
with your teen to better manage emotions, develop problem solving skills to
make responsible decisions and teach them the value is asking for help when needed.

Embrace Recovery and Wellness Center can assist with. Teens are met with many
stressors in today's world such as bullying, peer pressure, alcohol &
drugs, homework, anxiety, sexual identity, depression and social media...just

issues, especially if there is a divorce, death or other "major" life
issue happening in the family. Individual therapy is the format that most
