ALCOHOL DRUG EVALUATION or SUBSTANCE ABUSE EVALUATION

This type of evaluation is needed in cases where the Court, Probation Officer or other entities require you to undergo an evaluation other than the DUI evaluation. Sometimes this may be done after you have completed the required class hours to see if additional treatment is needed. This evaluation is more in-depth than the DUI evaluation, but uses the same DSM IV Diagnostic tool. 

All of our clinical type evaluations, consist of a set of comprehensive questions designed to determine whether the offender meets the diagnosis of substance abuse or addiction, or has misused the substance that led to the arrest.

To determine such diagnosis the Assessment Counselor uses the DSM IV Diagnostic tool which is also used by the American Psychiatric Society. Depending on the history of the use, previous treatment experience and diagnosis the Assessment Counselor will make a recommendation that will satisfy the requirements of the State where the offense occurred.
