The first step on the road to recovery is recognition of the problem. The recovery process can be hindered when a person denies having a problem and lacks understanding about substance use and addiction. The intervention of concerned friends and family often prompts treatment.

A health professional at Naufar will conduct a screening process to evaluate the possible presence of a particular problem. Once this is complete, an assessment will take place, which helps define the nature of the problem and determines a diagnosis. The purpose of the assessment is to understand whether an addiction is present, and the extent of the addiction, whether there are co-occurring conditions, and to assist in the development, with you, of a treatment plan. Professionals trained to diagnose addictions conduct alcohol and substance use assessments in a private setting. All information that is provided by you is kept confidential and only used to assist in your treatment.

Different types of professionals are trained to assess people for addictions, including doctors, nurses, counsellors, psychologists, therapists, and social workers. Assessment helps to ensure you receive the correct diagnosis for your condition and the best treatment possible.  Assessments often include questionnaires, physical exams, and self-assessment.

Because addiction affects many aspects of a person’s life, multiple types of treatment are often required. For most, a combination of medication and individual or group therapy is most effective. Treatment approaches that address an individual’s situation and any co-occurring medical, psychiatric and social problems can lead to sustained recovery.
