What Happens During The Assessment?

The assessment typically takes place over the phone and lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. We will talk in detail about your current situation and assess any mental health needs, and help you figure out if inpatient treatment is needed and what options will be available to you.

  • We will collect basic information such as age, gender assigned at birth, location and what addictive substance(s) or behaviour(s) you are seeking help for.
  • We will seek to understand the severity of your addiction, we will ask how often you drink, consume drugs or engage in problematic behaviour. This is vital as it will allow us to understand whether or not services like detox are necessary.
  • Dual diagnosis comes hand-in-hand with addiction, we will ask whether you suffer from depression, trauma, anxiety or other mental illnesses. Castle Craig has a multidisciplinary team of trained experts who have the right tools to assist you with these co-occurring conditions.
  • Moreover, a bit about your history will be invaluable – whether you’ve been to rehab before, are currently seeking therapeutic or psychiatric support, if you’re currently detoxing, etc…
  • We will discuss travel to Castle Craig and funding options.

Throughout the assessment, it will be important for you to be as informative and open as you can be about the true extent of your addiction, as well as any physical and psychological symptoms you might be facing.

We understand this may be hard, but we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Our Promise to You

The call is confidential and you can trust us to handle your information sensitively – we will never contact you without prior acknowledgement. We will not judge you or your addiction, instead, you can be expected to be treated with care, respect, and compassion – know that you are in knowledgeable and confident hands.
