A psychiatric evaluation is a process in where one of our trained psychiatrists gathers information on the individual to choose the best treatment option for that individual. Evaluations are sometimes necessary for those individuals that have a dependency on their addiction which has created personality and psychiatric disorders.
In order to determine a suitable addiction treatment, first and foremost, each individual will have a psychiatric evaluation. At Malibu Recovery, our trained and skilled staff works with you every step of the way to properly manage your conditions to reduce chances of relapse and help you beat your addiction.
How it Works
A psychiatric evaluation involves a series of tests and assessments to diagnose emotional, behavioral and or developmental conditions. For an adult, our evaluation may consist of one long session that ends with a suitable addiction treatment. The following are topics that are usually covered during a psychiatric evaluation:
- Individual History
- History of the Addiction
- Family History
- Medical History
- Social History
- Mental Status
- Evaluation of Substance Abuse
Based on the evaluation, our addiction specialist will determine the degree of the addiction and whether a detoxification protocol is necessary. We make every effort possible to get you back on the right track; our team is dedicated in helping you become yourself again.
