Clinical Evaluations

The clinical evaluation consists of a clinical interview, a review of your NEEDS results from the DUI School, and any other assessment instruments given to you by the evaluator.

If the evaluation results in a treatment recommendation, the clinical evaluator must show you a list of approved providers (DBHDD Registry of Treatment Providers).

The evaluator can only recommend a specific level of care. The evaluator cannot tell you to go to a specific treatment provider.
