RiverMend Health Centers of Georgia conducts free psychiatric evaluations as part of our comprehensive assessment process since co-occurring psychiatric disorders are common in patients with addiction and if untreated usually lead to relapse. The goal of our free psychiatric evaluations are to establish whether a mental disorder or other condition requiring the attention of a psychiatrist is present; to collect data sufficient to support a diagnosis; to collaborate with you or your loved one to develop an initial treatment plan, and to identify longer-term issues that need to be considered in follow-up care.
A multi-disciplinary team of experienced professionals at RiverMend Health Centers of Georgia will administer the free evaluation. Addiction and other psychiatric disorders are influenced by genetic and environmental factors. We develop working diagnoses and continuously re-evaluate your progress in treatment, adjusting your care to help prevent relapse and continue to improve your overall wellbeing.
