|Clinical Diagnostic Evaluations
DUI/DWI Out of State Evaluations
A number of states require clinical evaluations for DUI/DWI Offenders. Our
Out-of-State evaluations are conducted by Nationally Certified Addictions
Counselor and are valid and recognized throughout the United States.
Substance Related Disorder Evaluations
These are evaluations conducted on NON-DUI offenders. May be a voluntary
individual seeking help or someone referred for a substance related offense
but not related to driving a vehicle. Common cases, are individuals referred by
the courts or DFCS for Possession of Controlled Substances, Disorderly
Conduct, Criminal Trespass, Reckless Driving and similar offenses if alcohol was
related to the offense,
DUI Offender Clinical 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) for driver's license reinstatement.
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 DFCS, divorce attorneys, and others,
pre-adjudication cases and cases that do not fall under the Family Violence
Act such as Disorderly Conduct and similar cases.
Anger Management Evaluations
These evaluations are conducted on cases which are specifically referred by
criminal defense attorneys or the courts for offenses related to lack of
impulse control. 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 Clinical Evaluations
These evaluations are general diagnostic evaluations for a number of
behavioral health problems. Individuals 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 individual.
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
