Imagine for a moment taking your car in to a shop to get it diagnosed for possible work to be done. Wouldn't you want that assessment to be accurate, to be fair, and to have an outcome that you can easily understand? You wouldn't want a shop saying you need work done that isn't necessary, but at the same time, you don't want a shop saying your car is just fine if there are risks that need to be addressed to ensure your safety and well-being.
We understand that your assessment will often determine the next step depending on your current situation. You want the assessment to comprehensive and fair, based on solid diagnostic criteria, and with a counselor that begins your evaluation with an open mind and with no preconceived notions regarding your personal history. You want someone who will listen without judgement and provide the most appropriate clinical recommendation based on established DSM-5 diagnostic criteria and the ASAM criteria for patient placement. When you need an accurate and fair evaluation, it's in your best interest to seek out an experienced clinician. You have choices when it comes to getting an evaluation and it's not a choice to make quickly. Take your time, make phone calls, and know what is out there before scheduling your appointment.
Your final assessment becomes a permanent document, whether it is for your employer, the courts, or with your family law attorney or Guardian ad Litem.
This is when experience matters.
