As part of a mandatory court order I was required to have a mental health assessment. I was fortunate to find New Directions online. It was fast and easy to sign up.

BIG THANKS, Trevor, and well done!

RadioSteve - 06/15/2021

I was nervous about getting an assessment, thinking it could be either very biased, or worse, setting me up to need to pay thousands more for additional "counseling". These worries were completely unfounded. My assessment was very fair, following well known medical standard questionnaires and rating scales.

I found myself in a precarious situation, needing two separate assessments (anger management and alcohol) and needing them in a short period of time. I wasn't sure where to turn, until a friend recommended New Directions. Once I got registered and filled out the simple questionnaire/written evaluation I was contacted by Trevor, one of the counselors/evaluators.

I was faced with court-ordered charges which required me to complete a Drug & Alcohol Assessment.

I had a very short window between my arraignment and 1st hearing.

Ken - 01/24/2020

I was going through a difficult period and let my emotions get the best of me, resulting in some legal problems that made it necessary to have a mental health evaluation.

John C - 12/31/2019

I had a pleasant experience with Trevor from New Directions. The process went as smoothly as possible without any pre-determined negative judgement about my situation.

I recently needed to get a mental health evaluation for court. I went to the local mental health clinic and they recommended several providers however after calling many of them they either could not do it for me and or were months out to get me in. On top of it they wanted 600-700+ or more and for me to come in several times essentially adding cost for each session and report.

FH - 08/23/2019

Dr. Trever Davis at Directions Counseling was truly an amazing experience. Being an extremely busy business owner, and traveling a lot, Dr. Trever Davis and his firm quickly squeezed me into the schedule, working around my travel & work, and he was able to see me within 72 hours and worked around my scheduling restrictions. Dr.

P. Arora - 06/28/2019

After some misguided information and a couple failed attempts setting up appointments at the wrong types of places I am so glad that I found New Directions. The service/assessment that I needed was simple, and for a court in Tennessee. ND had exactly what I needed. Trevor Davis made the process amazingly easy and comfortable.

SR - 06/21/2019

I made a good choice picking New Directions for my Alcohol Use Assessment. We were able to complete the questionnaire online and the interview via telephone. It took about an hour and the report came back a few days later as promised. I highly recommend going this route for your voluntary or mandated assessment and choosing New Directions.

Andrew F - 06/05/2019

The assessment report may have been late, however, when following up with the evaluator, Trevor, they were very prompt with providing the assessment report per request. I deeply appreciate the efforts of this company and it was extremely professional during the evaluation.

I had a great deal of trepidation going into the assessment because I didn’t know what to expect, Trevor made very comfortable with the way he asked me questions. I was surprised because he asked me things had never thought of before. I would certainly recommend Directions Counseling Group to anyone seeking help.

JH - 01/23/2019

I just completed my assessment interview with Trevor. He made me feel comfortable & relaxed, not the feeling he’s out to get me! It was very in-depth and eye opening for me. Several areas were covered I had not considered that cause me an issue! Very timely with the report & was willing to work with me through the process of OVI!

Mike - 01/14/2019

The overall experience of the assessment was great. Trevor Davis did my assessment, and the entire time I felt confident and comfortable while talking with him. He made the experience of having to take an assessment a lot less stressful. He made sure to understand my individual experiences instead of grouping me with others. Overall, it was a good experience.

Trevor was amazing! He made me feel extremely comfortable and was easy to open up to right off the bat! Our conversation went really well and I am really grateful to him for making it as painless as possible! Thank you, Trevor!

Trevor Davis and New Directions were very professional throughout the entire assessment process. Trevor provided me with a very thorough online evaluation in a friendly and relaxing environment. Throughout the interview process I felt comfortable opening up about my alcohol use and other questions Trevor had regarding his assessment.

JS - 09/04/2018

New Direction is a great company to get an assessment through. I live in a rural area with not many people or options for counciling services. The first place I went for an assessment was biased and gave me an unfair assessment, presumably because they are the only treatment center in the area and can use their monopoly to leverage more business.

Pleased with my evaluation and the job done by my evaluator.

O.B - 07/15/2018

My experience with New Directions was very positive. I completed my online evaluation from the west coast, after close of business on the east coast. The following morning, I was contacted by a representative who scheduled my assessment. The representative was cordial and efficient. My assessment was scheduled for the nearest available time. My clinical evaluator was Trevor Davis, SWA, CDCA.

C.R. - 05/11/2018

If you use this service, I sure hope you don’t have any questions. After 4 attempts at calling and leaving a message, I simply gave up. I left 2 messages on a cell phone. One on an office phone. And I talked to one person that told me the “assistant” would call me back that same day. Absolutely no response. Better business bureau is looking into this place now.

Fraudulent company - 04/30/2018

My Counselor was very fair and worked with me to provide an level-headed evaluation of my substance abuse issues with not only recommendations on treatment, but practices to improve my life moving forward. I'll be sure to use all of these tools and suggestions moving forward as I focus on changing behavioral and thought patterns in hope of creating a brighter future.

CK - 04/24/2018

SE - 01/05/2018

I met with Trevor Davis and found him to be very thorough in questions as well as an active listener. I was not sure what to expect, but came away learning more than I expected about my use of alcohol and potential risks. Overall it was a good experience. I would recommend anybody would like to know more about this topic meet with Trevor.

I was court ordered to have a substance abuse evaluation. I was extremely nervous about the whole process. Right from the beginning of the conversation Mr. Davis made me feel at ease and comfortable. We walked through the process and then went through the evaluation. Mr. Davis was very professional and understanding of my situation. After the evaluation Mr. Davis promptly sent me the report.

J.G. - 04/04/2017

Trevor Davis, Substance Abuse Evaluator is wonderful. We worked together in order to get a A&D evaluation done for court. It went so well and I'm now a free woman due to his fair and balanced evaluation. I appreciate the care, time and attention to detail he included in the report.

VG - 03/20/2017

Trevor Davis from Directions was extremely helpful in providing a court mandated alcohol assessment in a short amount of time.

M - 02/27/2017

Afraid, I reached out for an assessment by New Directions. Having a problem is never a thing to celebrate, especially when it lands you in a situation out of your control. I called for help and that is precisely what I received. This process was very professional, sensitive, and respectful. Trevor, my counselor, took plenty of time and patience while conducting my evaluation.

M.H. - 02/23/2017

I had the opportunity to meet with Brian for a 105 minute interview this week for a Alcohol and Drug Assessment as well as a Anger Management Assessment.

It was very easy to tell from the beginning that Brian is a true professional.

R. R. - 03/21/2016

I found the entire experience at Directions very positive. From the receptionist who smiled and greeted me to Mr Davis who performed my assessment, I felt a genuine sense of caring and curiosity. This was my first time in a situation like this and I was concerned I would be met with judgment and disdain and I felt absolutely none of that.

JL - 03/17/2016

This is a FAIR and well educated institute. I recommend this to anyone who needs to have an assessment for counseling.

M.S. - 03/09/2016

BD - 02/26/2016

Poor planning on my part left me with a 48 hour window to comply with a court mandated drug and alcohol assessment. Directions counseling provided a professional assesment well within the unreasonably small time frame I offered. The staff were incredibly flexible regarding scheduling. Willing to accommodate both my time constraint and full schedule by providing me with a phone interview.

The environment at New Directions Counseling was very clean, the receptionist helpful and welcoming. The other staff that I witnessed greeting people were very welcoming as well. Brian Davis was extremely professional from the time I met him walking in the door through the time I left. I could tell that he cares and takes great pride in his honorable work.

After being pulled over for a DUI I was devastated and scared. I contacted New Directions in hopes that I would get a fair evaluation to give to the judge. I not only got a fair evaluation but was treated with respect and dignity, something I wasn’t expecting after being accused of being a “drunk driver”. I highly recommend this company; they helped me when I was down.

New Directions helped me get a fresh start. I was headed for trouble, but getting a DUI really woke me up. Meeting with their counselor helped me see my drinking from a new perspective. I still drink but I can't remember the last time I had too much to drink or woke up regretting it.

My family had an intervention and gave me the ultimatum to stop using pain pills or move out and make it on my own. It was probably one of the worst times of my life but one of the New Directions counselors helped me discover that I had a lot things going for me. With their support and some hard choices to leave some old friends behind I haven't used a pill in over a year.

I was arrested for a DUI with a .04 BAC. The judge agreed with my lawyer that my arrest was questionable but wanted an alcohol evaluation just to make sure I didn’t have a problem. Most places I called couldn’t even see me for 2 to 3 weeks. New Directions helped me get a quality assessment with friendly service and fortunately within 2 days.

I had a positive drug test at work and I thought everything I had worked so hard for was going to be gone with one foolish decision. I definitely made a mistake but I’m not a addicted. New Directions helped me get what I needed in a fast and professional manner. Though I hope I never have to use them again I would recommend them to anyone.

My boyfriend and I had several bad arguments after drinking. I had to make a decision to either work on cutting back or us breaking up. I decided that drinking wasn’t worth it and called New Directions for help. It was a good decision. The counselor didn’t preach to us or tell us we were "in denial" but helped us step back and see what was going on at a deeper level.

I lost my license in another state 10 years ago after a DUI and haven’t drank since. When I moved to another state I was able to get a new license but when I went to renew it in January I was told I had to take care of things with the original state.
