Santé Center for Healing’s Licensed Assessment Program offers a fair, precise and objective investigation of the client in crisis. Data collected during the assessment is then used to gauge the client’s ability to return to life/work, provide monitoring recommendations and/or the necessity for him/her to seek further addiction treatment programs. This information is provided in a formal written report to the referral source within a timeframe agreed upon.
