Nursing Professional Substance Assessment

Nurses are often required to take a substance abuse assessment if they are suspected of substance abuse, have been caught using/abusing alcohol or drugs and for their diversion programs. We can suggest corrective actions increasing your chances of keeping your professional license. Completing a recovery and diversion program may lessen the consequences against your licensure.

I am available for substance abuse evaluations 7 days a week and provide professional evaluations in an expedited and timely manner. You can order regular service for your substance abuse evaluation as well as expedited rushed service if you waited until the last minute.

I know the results of your substance abuse evaluation are very important to you and I take this process very seriously. I work very hard to make sure this process is fair, accurate and non-judgmental.

The substance evaluation assessment will determine if there is an alcohol or drug use disorder and whether or not education or treatment is recommended to minimize risks in the future. Not everyone who takes an evaluation needs treatment. I am a nurse myself and I know the pressures of working in the field. My goal is to keep good nurses working in the field.

How it Works

  • Order the substance abuse assessment evaluation.
  • The assessment forms are emailed, faxed or mailed to you.
  • Full instructions come with the substance abuse evaluation.
  • I am available for you through the substance abuse assessment process.
  • You fill out the forms and return them to me either by email or fax.
  • Once I receive the forms, I will contact you for questions and clarifications.
  • The completed substance abuse evaluation is emailed or faxed back to you.
  • Because this is a confidential record, it will only be sent to you unless you sign a release form.

Important to note: This is not an online alcohol and drug assessment evaluation. Sometimes online services may be rejected because people may think that the alcohol evaluation is administered online and therefore does not have credibility. I am a licensed psychotherapist and I am held to a higher standard.

We have a very high acceptance rate. I have been online providing these services since 2002 and have gained trust in the community and in my online presence. While my services are advertised online, this is the same exact alcohol and drug evaluation you would receive and complete if you did an in-person alcohol and drug evaluation. So if you are asked if this is an online evaluation, the answer would be no. You are completing the alcohol and drug evaluation with Dr. Kathy S. Garber, a licensed psychotherapist with years of experience in the field of addiction and alcohol and drug evaluations.

Whether you are going through the court/legal system, employer, nursing board or just addressing alcohol or drug concerns of your own, an alcohol and drug evaluation is a great starting point to help you decide your next steps, set new goals and determine your future. Not everyone who takes an alcohol and drug evaluation will need treatment.
