Assessment Types
Clinical Assessments

Anger Management / Domestic Violence

Scheduling

As a result of violence related charges (e.g., domestic violence, domestic assault, disorderly conduct, domestic dispute, etc.), you may be required to complete an Anger Management Assessment.

The purpose of an anger management assessment is to help the court or employer obtain an accurate understanding of your relationship with anger. This involves speaking with a counselor, providing a brief history of your anger and other areas of your life. The job of the clinician is to work collaboratively with you to identify and label your relationship with anger. Other areas of your life will also be explored to determine how they may be influencing that relationship.

The assessment concludes with the clinician making a clinical diagnosis along with any/all treatment recommendations (i.e. education and/or counseling).

Clinical Assessments

Substance Abuse / Drunk Driving (OWI, DUI, DWI)

Scheduling

A substance abuse assessment (e.g., OWI, DUI, DWI), also referred to as an alcohol assessment, involves speaking with a counselor and providing a brief history of your use of alcohol and other intoxicating substances. Several other areas of your life are also examined. The job of the clinician is to work collaboratively with you to identify/label your relationship with alcohol/drugs while also exploring how other life factors may be influencing that relationship.

The assessment concludes with the clinician making a clinical diagnosis along with any/all treatment recommendations (education and/or counseling). Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is extremely dangerous to you and to society-at-large. The Court is attempting to determine how likely you are to re-engage in this behavior going forward.

Assessments may be performed as an on-site or telephone service.
