A community-based needs assessment is a systematic process for determining and addressing needs (or gaps) between current conditions and desired conditions (or wants). It is used to acquire an accurate, thorough picture of the strengths and risk factors of a community.

Assessment results can be used to examine community-wide strengths and challenges, and assist in developing a plan to improve community conditions and create a supportive environment for those who suffer from substance use disorder and other mental health disorders to find recovery, and it also sets to encourage individual, family, and community wellness.
