How Are Evaluations Done?

Evaluations usually consist of a short written or online evaluation, followed by a follow-up with a mental health professional to discuss the findings. Evaluations whether performed using a telehealth or the more traditional in-person format typically range from 45 to 90 minutes. A licensed mental health professional then uses your written answers and interaction to produce a report for the Court. Depending on the therapist’s findings, this report may include a treatment recommendation, anger management, or some other service that best suits your need. The Court can then use this report to assist in the decision making process according to context of the court case.

How We Work With The Court

Treatment providers play a critical role with the courts by advocating for the needs of our mutual clients.  Monthly reports are sent to the courts on all monitoring cases that we oversee highlighting the progress individuals are making.  Additionally, we provide court specific treatment groups tailored to meet the unique needs of each client we serve to ensure their success.

What to expect:

We believe that treatment begins at hello.  From the moment you call to schedule your evaluation or to begin services, we encourage you to ask as many questions as you can to get a good understanding of the processes and approaches we use. One question many people ask is: “What is treatment like?”  The honest answer is that no treatment experience is identical.  After taking into consideration of where you are on your journey to recovery, we will develop a uniquely customized treatment plan to assist you in meeting your defined goals.  Depending on one’s unique needs, one can expect to meet with a licensed mental health professional or addiction counselor and participate in one-on-one therapy sessions, group therapy, and in some instances family therapy.
