Medical Assessment

Shaping the Personal Treatment Plan

During the assessment our medical staff determine a patient’s physical and mental state, assess detoxification and prescription needs and shape the personalised treatment plan. The medical team discuss individual cases as a group so that patients get more than one medical opinion.

A Thorough Assessment

Each patient receives a detailed assessment by our Consultant Psychiatrist and other doctors. They:

  • Conduct a full physical examination,
  • Take a medical history,
  • Examine the patient’s mental status,
  • Conduct blood tests and laboratory screenings.

The Consultant assesses detoxification requirements and prescribes any medication that patients need.

We also work with the family, spouse or work colleagues at this stage to obtain background information about the addiction.

Ongoing Assessment

Our team of doctors and nurses continually monitor the physical and mental health status of patients throughout treatment.
