Take a Self Assessment
We understand that one of the hardest decisions you’re going to have to make is to admit that you may be an addict and/or an alcoholic and we believe that you are the only person who can make this determination. There is no easy way to ask yourself this question. You simply need to assess your life, choices and decisions to decide whether or not this could be you. At 449 Recovery we are here to help.

Our treatment programs are designed to help any person who is struggling with substances, the negative consequences of substance use, or self-destructive and addictive behaviors involving substance abuse, from its mildest to its most severe forms, to live a better life. To begin the process you must first do a self-assessment of yourself. Take a few moments and answer the questions below. It’s a short exam that may very well save your life.

  • Do you drink alcohol?
  • If so, how many glasses do you drink per day or per week?
  • If you drink alcohol, can you stop after one glass?
  • Do you drink alone?

Now that you’ve answered and thought about the questions above the next step is to take a self-assessment to find out if the answers to these questions mean that there’s a problem. This is your decision to make and sometimes people aren’t able to completely commit themselves to the decision that they have an addiction problem without treatment. Chances are if you’ve answered yes to any of these questions you owe it to yourself or the person you’re concerned about to have confidential phone discussion about your situation with one of our assessment counselors. Your feelings and questions about whether or not you or the person you’re concerned about needs help should be considered with the help of a professional. Our admissions evaluators are here to help you with your fears and help you to further assess your situation. Take a moment and call one of our counselors today and they will help you to make your own decisions and provide you with some direction. The call is free and confidential and the help could be invaluable to you, your loved ones and your life.
