New Directions Offers Court-Accepted Alcohol Assessments

Have you been asked to complete an alcohol assessment by a court, employer, treatment facility, or other authority? New Directions can help. For more than 12 years, we’ve helped thousands of people complete alcohol evaluations and other assessments with help from our qualified professionals.

The goal of an alcohol assessment is to determine the nature of your alcohol use and if you would benefit from education or treatment. You may be required to complete this type of evaluation in one of the following situations:

  • Legal charges involving alcohol, such as public intoxication, disorderly conduct, etc.
  • Workplace incidents involving alcohol
  • Request from a physician or treatment facility
  • Self-referred or referred by a  concerned family member

With New Directions, completing your alcohol evaluation doesn’t need to be stressful. Here’s how to get started.
