Who is the service for?
The Assessment Referral Service is for people who are concerned about their use of alcohol drugs, or gambling. Family and friends are encouraged to contact the A.R.S. even though they do not personally have a problem with substance abuse or gambling but are concerned about somebody who does.

Anyone can make referrals to the A.R.S. - physicians, nurses, mental health workers, employers, union officials, judges, lawyers and staff of social agencies. When making a referral on someone else's behalf please ensure the person is aware of the nature of the referral.

How does the service work?
First, a trained counsellor conducts an interview with the person to determine how alcohol, drugs or gambling are affecting a number of life areas - family and marital relationships, social relationships, education/employment, financial, health, leisure, and legal status. Then, together thev develop a treatment plan which may include referrals to Treatment Services and other Community Resources.
