What is an Assessment?

Creekside’s Masters-trained clinicians provide a comprehensive clinical assessment to determine what type of behavioral health services will be most appropriate for a client. The patient’s past medical and mental health history will be discussed, as well as any previous drug or alcohol abuse. Family or friends are more than welcomed to attend during the process, since it truly can help in terms of support.

Once the assessment is completed, we then determine what types of programs would be most beneficial. We offer inpatient, outpatient and partial programs for individuals in Kingsport, as well as the surrounding regions in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and the entire state of Tennessee.

How do I schedule an assessment?

Anyone can contact us: a friend, family member or the patient themselves, and your assessment will be completely confidential. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are completely able to answer all of your questions.

We will ask you a series of questions, and then determine what action should or should not be taken.

Contact us at 423-830-8114.
