What are Assessments?

Assessments are tools that are used by social workers, counselors and medical professionals to determine where you are at with your health and well-being. These assessments help us understand the situation from your perspective as well as a professional perspective.

How Do Assessments Work?

Assessments involve a series of questions that are asked in a conversational way. They are tools that allow us to get to know each client better as a person. The information we gather during an assessment is vital to developing an effective treatment plan for you.

Who Can Benefit from Assessments?

Counselors and clients benefit from the process of completing an assessment. Without this tool, counselors may miss some details that give them vital information to aid in the recovery. Assessments also help clients communicate their needs and concern.

What are the Signs that Someone Needs an Assessment?

An assessment is always recommended for anyone entering treatment for drug or alcohol dependence, abuse or addiction. During the meeting with counselors, they discuss each aspect of the assessment in detail. Their goal is to develop an effective treatment plan, not pry or simply make you feel uncomfortable about the process.

What Happens During the Assessment?

After you fill out the paperwork and assessment tools, counselors use a conversational approach to assessments in which they start with a question and let the conversation flow from there. If they feel that the discussion is straying from the intent of the assessment, they refer back to the tool to ensure that they gather all the necessary information.

How Much Do Assessments Cost in Seattle?

Island Assessment and Counseling accepts most insurance plans and accept cash or credit cards for the client’s portion of the payment. For those who are uninsured or need help with out-of-pocket expenses, we offer in-house payment plans.
