|Clinical Diagnostic Evaluations
DUI/DWI Out of State Evaluations
A number of states require clinical evaluations for DUI/DWI Offenders. Our Out-Of-State
clinical evaluations are conducted by Nationally Certified Addictions Counselor and are
valid and recognized throughout the United States.
We specialize in working with the requirements, credentials, programming and specific
documentation required from a number of States, among them: North Carolina, South
Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, California, New York, Utah, Maryland and
Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders Evaluations
These are evaluations conducted for NON-DUI cases. Individuals requesting a
Substance Related Clinical Evaluation may be voluntarily seeking help or may be
someone referred for an evaluation for other type of offenses. Common cases are
individuals referred by the criminal defense attorneys for charges like Public
Intoxication, Criminal Trespass, Disorderly Conduct, Prostitution, Reckless Driving,
Possession of Controlled Substances or DFCS referrals in cases where parents need to
be evaluated to determine if there is a substance abuse or dependence problem that
may be interfering with adequate parenting of their children.
DUI Offender Evaluations
These are evaluations regulated by the State of Georgia DUI Intervention Program.
These evaluations must be conducted, per Georgia Law, on all post adjudication DUI
offenders (first and multiple DUI offenders) in order to have a Georgia driver's license
reinstated. A good evaluator should provide you with sound advice about how to get
your driver's license reinstated. If you have been arrested for DUI and want to get
your evaluation before you go to Court, make sure you let your Clinical Evaluator know
that you want to follow the DUI Offender process for license reinstatement purposes.
Domestic Violence Evaluations
Georgia Law prohibits conducting Domestic Violence Evaluations on convicted
misdemeanor offenders under the Family Violence Act.
Our evaluations are conducted on cases referred by the Department of Family and
Children Services (DFCS), when there are no criminal charges for domestic violence
against the parent involved, divorce attorneys, criminal defense attorneys for cases
prior to adjudication and cases that do not fall under the Family Violence Act such as
cases where charges were reduced to Disorderly Conduct.
Anger Management Evaluations
These evaluations are conducted on cases which are specifically referred by criminal
defense attorneys or the municipal and state courts for offenses related to lack of
Violent offenses involving two non-related individuals would benefit from assessing
the level of violence and impulsivity in addition to issues such as substance abuse or
dependence which may be influencing the individual's behavior.
Mental Health / Psychosocial Evaluations
These evaluations are general diagnostic evaluations for a number of behavioral
health problems which may or may not be related to a legal problem.
Individuals requesting a Mental Health or Psychosocial Evaluation may present with
problems related to inappropriate discipline with children that may have led to
parenting related issues. Others may present numerous behavioral health problems
such as sexual deviations and/or issues related to childhood trauma.
The purpose of a Clinical Diagnostic Evaluation is to determine whether or not an
individual is presenting symptoms of an addictive disease and/or a co–occurring
psychiatric disorder. Our Clinical Evaluations asses every aspect of an individual’s
functioning from substance use and/or abuse to medical, mental health, family, work,
education, and legal history. At the conclusion of the evaluation, an accurate diagnosis
and appropriate treatment options, when indicated, are reviewed and discussed with
The evaluation takes place on an outpatient basis and includes a comprehensive written
report. For each type of clinical evaluation we administer a number of psychometric tests
and review collateral documentation such as court documents, hospital, medical and
treatment records and prior psychological and psychiatric evaluations. If you or
someone you might know would benefit from a Clinical Diagnostic Evaluation, please
contact us for a confidential appointment or make a referral.
