Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM)

To schedule your ANAM, contact us by phone at 719-333-5177. ANAM is a proven, computer-based, cognitive assessment tool designed to detect the speed and accuracy of:

  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Thinking Ability
It records an individual Service Member’s performance through responses provided on a computer.

ANAM assessments are conducted prior to deployment and can be used by doctors to identify and monitor changes in brain function before and after an injury. By itself, ANAM does not diagnose any medical condition. The results of the ANAM assessment may enable health care staff to compare a Service Member’s mental speed, accuracy of attention, memory, and thinking ability before and after an injury.

We provide comprehensive services to individuals, in coordination with or without their commands, who are experiencing problems attributed to substance abuse or misuse.
