MENTAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT
Mental Health Assessments can give clients an opportunity to uncover issues that may be limiting the potential of their lives. Utilizing various assessment tools including clinical interviewing and testing can give clients a deeper understanding of their issues and get recommendations for treatments that can help.
Domestic Violence Assessment
Courts and probation officers routinely ask individuals to complete this evaluation in cases when there has been a domestic dispute, a domestic violence (DV) charge and in some cases after a disorderly conduct charge. Domestic violence evaluations seeks to help you and the court (or employer) get an accurate picture of your overall ability to engage in meaningful relationships without resorting to violence during a conflict.
A comprehensive trauma assessment is an in-depth assessment of the impact of trauma a person has experienced, how trauma impacts their relationships and functioning, and make recommendations for services or community supports. The purpose of assessment is to obtain clinical recommendations to guide clients and/or caretakers in developing treatment plans that will address identified trauma, behaviors, and diagnoses that meet clinical criteria.
Alcohol & Drug Assessment
The primary purpose of an Alcohol and Drug Evaluation is to comprehensively assess the symptoms present in the individual and consequently determine whether these constitute an addictive disease and/or co-occurring psychiatric disorder. Alcohol and Drug Evaluations are often court-ordered and/or recommended by a criminal defense attorney or probation office for alcohol or drug-related charges. We evaluate personal history, work history, attitude, emotional stability, criminal history and alcohol/drug use through personal interview and assessment tools. Your counselor will discuss the results of the evaluation with you, and based on the findings, recommend a course of action.
