Individual and Family Substance Abuse Assessments

Recovery Works provides individuals the opportunity to have an objective evaluation of their current substance use to determine if there is a problem with their use of alcohol and/or drugs. Typically our client’s are self referrals or family referrals in which a member of the family is concerned about a family members drug use and wants to help the person stop the destruction in their life.

This assessment will identify the severity of the problem, evaluate the significance of the substance in the person’s life and provide a detailed recovery plan to assist the person in resolving the problem.

Recovery Works offers individual counselling for clients who want to explore changing their alcohol and drug use. At Recovery Works, we believe that recovery is possible and have dedicated our lives to helping people and families who have problems with substances.

Individual counselling is focused on the immediate problem at hand, typically the problem or situation involving alcohol and drug use and the negative impact these substances are having on your life at the present moment.

Our fee is $85 per hour.

Family Counselling

Recovery Works offers family counselling for people who are dealing with substance abuse issues within the family. Substance abuse within families is a significant problem that can destroy the family unit.

Our fee is $100 per hour.
