What to Expect

After answering a few questions about any history of drug, tobacco and/or alcohol use, mental health symptoms and other risk factors, you and your health care provider will discuss whether these behaviors could be affecting your health.

To better address your needs, your substance use patterns will be discussed with you in a range of risk levels. Your level is determined through the conversations you have with your provider. The risk levels increase as frequency and amounts of use increase.
