Alcohol / Drug Assessment (Substance Abuse Assessment)


This 2 hour assessment includes the client’s bio-psycho-social history and screens for potential substance abuse. A more thorough version of this assessment can be completed in 3 hours if the therapist also needs to screen for any mental health diagnosis. Most often this is a court-ordered assessment, but can also be required by an employer.



We believe that we are the most affordable office anywhere in the Orlando area for substance abuse assessments.  The price includes the initial assessment time, any required follow up, and the written report with diagnosis if applicable.  The actual client session time it takes to complete a substance abuse assessment is typically between 2-3 hours.  If you have any questions, please call our office at 321-332-6984.
