Court Ordered Psychological and Substances Abuse Evaluations
Court ordered assessments and evaluations consists of a face-to-face assessments in which we gather
information about past and current charges and other personal history through a verbal interview and various written tests.
Client must be prepared to answer questions regarding family history, employment history, mental health counseling history, substance abuse history, and medical history, including current prescription names, dosages, prescribing doctor’s name, address and phone number. A personal interview with the client, family members, and other invested parties, along with administration of appropriate assessment instruments can often enhance the accuracy of assessments. The clinician will make recommendations for appropriate treatment or other resources which could be helpful in preventing future occurrences of the offending behaviors.
A written report will be prepared and provided within a week of assessment and, with your written permission, may be forwarded to anyone a written consent is completed for which is usually an attorney child welfare worker or, probation officer.
The written report is included in the assessment fee. Additional documentation requiring additional preparation time will be assessed appropriate fees accordingly. All other services that may be required for court ordered
assessments, including but not limited to additional assessments, drug screens, or court appearances, are separate services charged as additional fees.
