Your First Step to Help — Assessment

Before treatment can begin, an assessment will be conducted with you and/or your loved one at Meridian HealthCare’s Assessment Department by a Master’s level licensed counselor.

The Assessment is a vital part of beginning treatment and ensures admission to the appropriate program. Our welcoming Assessment staff will greet you as you enter our main location at 527 North Meridian Road or our Warren location at 320 High Street Northeast and will guide you through the assessment process.


Meridian offers walk-in assessments and scheduled appointments. Walk-ins are offered Monday-Friday 8:00 am–4:00 pm at our Meridian Road location. At our Warren office, walk-ins are welcome Monday-Friday 8:00 am–3:00 pm. No appointment is needed as long as you come to Meridian between those hours. Walk-ins are first-come, first-serve. If you prefer to schedule an appointment, an Assessment Case Manager will speak with you and schedule the appointment at your convenience.


If you have questions prior to the assessment, a free confidential consultation can be conducted at Meridian HealthCare’s Assessment Department. Many of your questions can be addressed over the phone with an Assessment Case Manager if you contact 330-797-0070 for the Youngstown location and 330-318-3873 for the Warren location.

You can also submit your questions online.
