Screening & Assessment

MVP Recovery’s Screening and Assessment Centers play a pivotal role in the journey towards recovery from substance abuse and mental health challenges. These centers serve as the initial point of contact for individuals seeking help and provide comprehensive assessments and remove barriers by providing county funding for uninsured individuals so they can obtain the help they need.


The primary purpose of MVP Recovery’s Screening and Assessment Centers is to accurately evaluate the needs and circumstances of each individual seeking assistance. The objectives include:

    1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Conduct thorough assessments to identify the extent of substance abuse or mental health issues, co-occurring disorders, medical history, and psychosocial factors.
    2. Individualized Treatment Planning: Use assessment findings to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each individual’s unique needs, preferences, and goals.
    3. Referral to Appropriate Services: Provide recommendations for the most suitable level of care and connect individuals with the appropriate resources, including detoxification programs, residential treatment, outpatient counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and support groups.
    4. Engagement and Motivation: Foster a supportive and non-judgmental environment to encourage individuals to engage actively in the treatment process and commit to their recovery journey.

Components of Screening and Assessment:

MVP Recovery’s Screening and Assessment Centers utilize a multidimensional approach to gather comprehensive information and insights. Key components include:

    1. Intake Interview: Trained clinicians conduct in-depth interviews with individuals to gather information about their substance use history, mental health symptoms, social support network, family dynamics, employment status, legal issues, and other relevant factors.
    2. Medical Evaluation: Assess the individual’s physical health and any medical conditions that may impact treatment, including infectious diseases, chronic pain, and medication management.
    3. Psychological Assessment: Administer standardized assessments and screenings to evaluate the presence and severity of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, and personality disorders.
    4. Substance Use Screening: Utilize validated tools to assess the patterns and severity of substance use, including frequency, quantity, duration, and consequences of use.
    5. Co-Occurring Disorders: Identify any co-occurring mental health disorders or medical conditions that may complicate treatment or require specialized interventions.
    6. Risk Assessment: Evaluate the individual’s risk of harm to themselves or others, including suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors, and potential for violence.
    7. Cultural and Diversity Considerations: Recognize and respect cultural differences, language barriers, and diverse backgrounds to ensure that assessment processes are inclusive and sensitive to individual needs.
