Substance Abuse Diagnosis

Substance abuse, chemical dependency and addiction are not terms to be used lightly. An authorized diagnosis can be the ticket to getting the help you need to live a life free of illicit substances. Duke City Recovery Toolbox in Albuquerque, New Mexico provides diagnostic services to help you qualify for medication-assisted treatment and other therapies to help you overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction.

The Importance of a Diagnosis

Medication-assisted treatment is highly effective, but it is not available to everyone and it isn’t free. A formal diagnosis is required for eligibility in treatment programs that offer methadone or other addiction recovery medications. Medicaid also requires an official diagnosis before any recovery-related services will be covered.

A medical diagnosis may also qualify participants for other types of aid, including financial assistance, housing subsidies, food benefits and more. A diagnosis can also help participants to better understand their condition—to see dependency/addiction as a disease that requires treatment rather than a mark of poor choices and failed willpower.

Medical and Clinical Diagnosis

At Duke City Recovery Toolbox, we offer diagnostic services to determine your eligibility for medication-assisted treatment. A formal diagnosis is provided by both a physician and a member of our clinical team.

How to Get a Substance Abuse Diagnosis

The diagnosis of opiate use disorder (or other dependency/addition issue) is part of the intake process. Please contact us to schedule an intake appointment. We also welcome walk-ins from 6:00 am-8:00 am Monday through Thursday. Participants who meet eligibility requirements will receive medications the same day.
