Can anyone please tell me any info on what to expect?
During my chemical dependency assessments, I went to an LCDC. I was asked details about every aspect of my life: work, relationships, family, living arrangements, drug and alcohol use, hobbies ect. My personal advice is to pay for the assessment out of pocket and don't let them know you have insurance. During my 1st initial assessment, I went to a place that was a division of my employer and they knew I had good insurance. I believe that the lady who did my assessment wanted to admit me to the most intensive outpatient program because she knew I had good insurance. I went to The Right Step because I did not agree with the initial assessment. I told the counselor at the Right Step the exact same thing I told the first lady and she wanted me to go to EEP. Because I had conflicting evaluations, I had to drive from Houston to Dallas to see a psychiatrist and I ended up in TPAPN anyway.
