National Alcohol Screening day
In recognition of National Alcohol Screening Day, Thursday, April 5, Behavioral Health Services of Washington County Health System will offer free drug and alcohol screenings today through Friday, April 6.
Screenings take approximately 20 minutes and are free and confidential.
To arrange an appointment, call 301-766-7600 or 1-800-635-2774.
The third annual National Alcohol Screening Day is designed to call attention to alcohol problems on a national level, offer individuals the opportunity to be screened for alcohol problems and refer those in need for further evaluation.
Participants who attend the screenings will hear an educational presentation about alcohol problems, take a written screening test, review the results with a clinician and receive a referral, if appropriate. The free and anonymous screenings are not a substitute for a formal evaluation, and no diagnosis or specific treatment recommendations wil be given.
