Assessments and Treatment for Teens and Young Adults

You will benefit from a personalized assessment unique to your situation

At the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, an alcohol and drug use assessment is performed by a licensed professional who will assess specific addiction issues, mental health, gender, physical health, home environment, level of social development, and environmental issues. We don't focus on addiction in isolation.

Many assessment options are available, depending on the need of the individual:

  • By phone: Free, phone-based assessments with a licensed addiction professional at 1-866-831-5700.

  • Online: Free, confidential self-guided, online alcohol and drug screening tool at

  • In-person visit: In-person assessments determine whether treatment services are recommended and, if so, what type. A more lengthy assessment is available for those who have been court ordered to have an assessment done or for those who need assessment documentation.

  • In-person stay: Residential evaluations take an in-depth look at psychological issues, spirituality, family relationships, physical health, social history, and alcohol and other drug use. A diagnosis is made and recommendations for level of care and resources are provided.

We also offer Teen Intervene, a program for teenagers whose abuse of or experimentation with alcohol or other drugs may lead to addiction.
