Abstract

This study, based on the view that alcohol/other drug dependence is a biopsychosocial issue, determines the extent to which treatment facilities use a biopsychosocial model to guide their assessment/screening process. Analyses identify the extent to which various facilities follow a biopsychosocial model in their assessment process. Survey results indicate that facilities could expand the use of a biopsychosocial approach in assessing patients.
