New Directions provides professional drug and alcohol assessments and evaluations in-person, online or by phone for individuals in 48 States.
If you are under the age of 21 and caught drinking, in possession of alcohol or an illegal substance, it is common for courts and schools to require that you get an alcohol and drug assessment from a professional. We regularly provide assessments in-person, online or by phone for minors in 48 states. Being involved in a court proceeding can be stressful or scary and our staff are sensitive to this fact. The goal of the assessment is to help determine the risk level involved in your alcohol or drug use and provide proactive steps to help you move forward from the legal incident. Fortunately, many courts look for opportunities to help minors in these situations. Charges may be dropped or reduced if proactive steps are being taken to prevent future problems. In other instances, you may be offered a diversion program. Diversion programs typically remove legal charges from your record but hold you accountable to complete some form of education or treatment to avoid future substance use problems.
An assessment with us will require anywhere from 50-90 minutes. After completing our questionnaire you will have an interview with one of our evaluators (in-person or by phone or webcam). Once the interview is complete your evaluator writes a report customized to your situation and places a copy in your secure account. From here you can view, print or download it for your own purposes. School or court representatives only see your document if and when you choose to provide it to them.
