True North provides individual diagnostic and referral services. We encourage students to follow through with the recommendations of the diagnostic session.


We use the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs Short Screener (GAIN-SS) to screen students. Counselors meet with each student to review their personalized feedback report. They discuss recommendations and treatment placement, if needed.


Students with greater needs complete a full assessment. The assessment process is a comprehensive, face-to-face diagnostic interview. We document the student's history of involvement with alcohol and other drugs, as well as any other behavioral health issues. We also identify areas of personal strength.
