Drug & Alcohol Assessments at Prairie Center
What to Know and Expect
Accessing treatment services at Prairie Center generally begins with what’s known as an intake assessment or a screening. This assessment helps us determine what type of help you need and if accepted for treatment, it will help our team design a custom treatment plan for you to consider all variables impacting your addiction.
The assessment process often begins with a short screen, or pre-assessment, to help us understand your financial situation and outline certain demographics for our files (name, address, etc.)
- Drug use, criminal, and medical history
- Mental health issues, emotional concerns, and life stressors
- Substance use triggers and readiness to change
- Relapse potential and support systems
The assessment process is completely confidential and takes about two hours.
What to bring to your assessment:
- Medicaid card or MCO insurance card
- Private medical insurance card (of all working dependents in household)
- Recent paystub (of all working dependents in household) and $5.00
- If you have no insurance and no job: Bring a recent copy of your FICA report and $5.00
- List of all prescribed medications
