Alcohol & Drug Assessments

Alcohol & Drug Assessments

Travis and surrounding Counties and Out of State DWI convictions requiring an Alcohol and Drug Assessment.

ALCOHOL & DRUG AWARENESS INSTITUTE [ADAI] Licensed Counselor[s] conduct an in-depth Diagnostic Assessment that measures the degree of alcohol/drug problems outside of the current alcohol/drug offense. The assessment process will determine where a person is on a continuum between No Substance Related Problems at this time to a Mild, Moderate or Severe Substance Use Disorder. During the Clinical Assessment, Evidence Based Instruments and an in-depth interview [up to 2 hour service] will build a comprehensive profile that evaluates the extent to which Alcohol and/or Other Drug use has interfered with the client’s functioning. Clinician[s] explore the following lifestyle areas; including but not limited to:

-medical and psychological history

-family relationships

-social adaptation

-employment/vocational/academic development

-legal involvement

-alcohol and other drug use history

-prior alcohol and other drug education or treatment

Following review of the full Clinical Assessment, the ALCOHOL & DRUG AWARENESS INSTITUTE [ADAI] Licensed Counselor[s] will formulate a succinctly written summary [up to 2 hour service] and a recommendation is made for the appropriate level of counseling and/or education. There are specific courses mandated by the State of Texas, which must be taken if/when arrested for and/or convicted of certain offenses. This should be taken into account when recommending appropriate counseling and education needs for each client. ALCOHOL & DRUG AWARENESS INSTITUTE [ADAI] Licensed Counselor[s] have long-term relationships with Service Providers in Austin and the surrounding areas and are familiar with the philosophy of Self-Help Groups to which clients may be referred. ALCOHOL & DRUG AWARENESS INSTITUTE [ADAI] Licensed Counselor[s] encourage therapeutic collaboration with their client’s by facilitating applicable referrals [with appropriate documentation of client consent] available in the Client’s community.
