Expert Consulting Services for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Organizations
Have you been ordered by a family or criminal court, the Department of Motor Vehicles, or another agency to undergo an alcohol and drug assessment, evaluation, or counseling sessions? I can help! My services are accepted by the courts, law enforcement agencies, probation, parole, and other government agencies in California, Oregon, and many other States.
An alcohol or drug evaluation is often required when a criminal offense has occurred and substance abuse was involved. It may be also required in other legal situations when you have had a history of alcohol or drug abuse. Your attorney may suggest one prior to your court hearings or they may be ordered by a judge to assess the severity of a substance abuse problem and the recommended treatment options. I provide fair and non-judgemental substance abuse services to court-mandated clients at affordable rates to residents of California and Oregon. I do a thorough evaluation of all of the circumstances in your life to ensure you receive a fair and accurate report. I will also do a thorough review of all court documents and orders to ensure that you complete the exact requirements that are necessary to fulfill the requirements.
Assessments and evaluations can be critical in completing or fulfilling court obligations or the outcome of your case. It's important to have a fair and impartial clinician who makes sure you are treated fairly during the process. Some clinicians have been known to recommend clients to required treatment that they provide - this is unethical and unfair to those being evaluated. I never refer or order clients to my own services.
Court cases that often require these type of assessments and/or counseling include:
A DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) or DUI (Driving Under the Influence) arrest or charge when a driver was impaired by either alcohol or drugs.
A DUI/DWI that occurred outside of the state you live in.
Other criminal charges including drug possession, paraphernalia, drunk in public, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, trespassing, domestic violence, and others.
Family Court cases that involve custody.
I provide evaluations, assessments, and counseling that meets court requirements online, by phone or in-person. After you have completed your assessments or counseling, I will provide you with a court-ready report or proof of completion. The court or other officials will only see the report if you choose to provide it to them. An alcohol or drug test may be required as part of your assessment or counseling and is determined on a case-by-case basis. You will be responsible for lab testing fees if a drug test is required.
Have you have been the victim of an unfair, incompetent, or improperly administered substance abuse evaluation? I can provide a thorough second opinion. I can review all of the information in your report to verify that it was conducted correctly and that documented evidence of a substance abuse problem exists. Fees for second opinions are calculated based on the amount of time required to complete the review.
