Dual Diagnosis
Psychological Testing

Proper therapy is vital for effective drug and alcohol addiction treatment. For this reason, a substance abuse rehab center will conduct a battery of psychological tests to assess the patient’s condition, including how dangerous he or she is to others and his or herself. Through testing, we can understand the quality of a patient’s judgment, insight, abstract reasoning skills and more. This is done in order to devise a tailor-made strategy designed to provide the optimal setting for and form of treatment.

Procedure

The psychological testing administered by specialist South Coast Counseling therapists begins with the observation of the patient. Gathered data is collated following an interview between professional and patient, the former noting the latter’s expressions, appearance, speech patterns, mood and other ticks and quirks. Only at the conclusion of this procedure will the formulation of an addiction treatment plan commence. The results of this evaluation enable our team to deliver the most effective treatment possible, ensuring a full and lasting recovery for each of our patients suffering from the damaging after-effects of alcohol and drug abuse.
