Addiction Severity

How Bad is Your Addiction?

Recovery is a journey. You can’t simply hop on and hop off the ride without losing your place or getting disoriented. There are distinct stages to sobriety, and you should not try to rush your results.

As the popular saying goes: take it one day at a time.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) has delineated six dimensions of dependency diagnoses, which is known as the ASAM criteria. This is a complex set of assessment criteria, which is appropriately attuned to the complexity of human behavior. Addictive behavior may manifest itself in a number of ways. As caring professionals, we must be prepared to meet you at whichever junction you find yourself in the dependency/recovery process.

Let’s take a look at the vital factors of the ASAM criteria that shape the dueling dynamics of addiction and sobriety:

To gauge your level of depression, you must first acknowledge it.

  • Experiential – How do intoxication and withdrawal make you feel?
  • Medical – Has your physical health been compromised by substance abuse?
  • Behavioral – How has your mental health been affected by addiction?
  • Evolution – Are you willing to change?
  • Relapse – If you struggle with setbacks, how do you rebound?
  • Environmental – What is your living situation and how does it reflect your goals?

In order to embrace your sobriety, we want to accurately assess your needs. The dimensions above are merely a roadmap, but you are navigating the vehicle. To extend the metaphor, you are the driving force that fuels your rehabilitation.

In the spirit of self-empowerment, we have designed the following questionnaire to determine your level of addiction. There are no right or wrong answers, just honesty. We want to know if you are in the experimental phase of substance use, a habitual user, someone in danger of overdose, or an individual struggling with the advanced stages of dependency.

We focus on all stages equally; we just want to know how to address your needs. More importantly: we want you to recognize your addiction for what it is.

No matter where you fall on the spectrum of recovery and dependency, we want to help. Solutions are just a click away – let us know how we can meet you more than halfway!

    Launch Centers Treatment was a major help to me. The therapists and staff genuinely cared about me and truly helped me to make a plan for my future. My personal therapists helped me to discover where some of my deeper issues came from. All of the staff worked tirelessly with me to talk through my issues, or just about life, and offered realistic solutions to my current problems and situation. All of the staff went above and beyond and advocated relentlessly for me.

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
