Alcohol and Drug Evaluations (also known as clinical evaluations or substance abuse assessments) are mandated by Judges, Attorneys, Probation Officers, Pretrial Diversion Officers and any law enforcement or employment agency that may see it necessary to assess the seriousness of an individual’s addiction to alcohol and drugs.
Alcohol and Drug Evaluations are typically required for a set of charges, including misdemeanors or felonies nationwide.

Alcohol and Drug Evaluations are conducted in the privacy of our offices in Atlanta or Marietta. Individuals are assessed based on the Addiction Severity Index Instrument or the Michigan Alcohol Screening Test (MAST) and Drug Abuse Screening Test (DAST). This process includes standardized psychometric tests and a complete bio-psychosocial history is assessed and the results are shared with the individual at the end of the assessment process. A written report is prepared based on results and diagnosis, along with treatment choices, if necessary.
Alcohol and Drug Evaluations are used in court sentencing mitigation to reduce the length of a sentence, prison commitment or treatment can be substituted in lieu of all the sentences. The sooner you complete your evaluation the quicker you’ll be on your way to freedom.
