Iris Health Clinic

Medical & Psychiatric Evaluation

Quality & Affordable Medical and Psychiatric Evaluation in Waukesha and Milwaukee

Iris Health Clinic (IHC) takes a comprehensive approach to our medical and psychiatric evaluations to properly and efficiently diagnose substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. The evaluation explores the psychiatric, medical, social, and developmental history, previous psychiatric assessments, treatments, and degree of adherence to past treatments.

The purpose of our evaluation is to investigate the history of addiction, the substance use, and attempts to gain a broader perspective on the individual’s personality and 

mental health status by reviewing significant life events – current and past – and the patient’s responses to them. Our board-certified experts obtain a complete, objective picture from the evaluation to determine whether mental health auxiliary services will benefit a patient and maximize addiction recovery.

Medical and Psychiatric Evaluation for Addiction & Mental Health: Our Integrated and Evidence-Based Treatment Approach

Recent data reveals that 45 to 60% of those diagnosed with a substance use disorder also have a co-occurring psychiatric illness. The goals of IHC’s medical and psychiatric evaluation is to establish whether a mental disorder or other condition requiring the attention of a psychiatrist is present; to collect sufficient data to support a diagnosis; to develop an initial treatment plan, and to identify longer-term issues that need to be considered in follow-up care. 

At IHC, we are passionate about providing both quality and affordable addiction and mental treatment for individuals and families in Wisconsin. Every day we work hard to prove that we are 100% dedicated to improving the health and well-being of those in our care through our evidence-based medical and therapeutic approaches. Our compassionate and empathetic therapists are trained to support individuals, couples, and families who are seeking support for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, emotional and mental health issues, eating disorders, PTSD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and more.

Our Medical and Psychiatric Evaluation services are integrated, meaning our programs combine the use of multiple treatment services in order to offer real recovery solutions to people seeking to transform their overall health and well-being.  Clients will work closely with our qualified staff to develop a customized treatment plan to decide which of our treatment modalities will work best for them.


We understand that seeking treatment is not easy and the last thing a person needs is to fear is that they will be exposed by treatment staff for doing so. Fortunately, the strict rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) are designed to protect patient confidentiality.   We respect these rules and we follow them. Plus, many of our leadership are in recovery and many of our family members, so we know first hand the need to seek treatment for ourselves and our loved ones privately.
