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. Due to my schedule, time restrictions and budget I started to look online and found this company. I was so happy I found them. I was skeptical at first however after reading reviews, blog and FAQ I knew I made the right choice. I filled out the questionnaire that night and called them the next day to schedule my interview. It was scheduled that same day and I spoke to Trevor Davis. He was very professional, prompt and understanding to my needs and situation. He explained everything to me in detail of the process and was very impressed by the way he handled himself. To my surprise I had the report back that same day and it was exactly what I needed to turn in. I highly recommend Trevor and NDSBS for your assessment needs. Give them a call you will be happy you did. I am grateful for Trevor and his company services they provide. They are really helping people through changeling times in their life and today that is hard to find. I can’t thank him enough for helping me out with my needs.
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. Trever Davis was extremely thorough and spent over an hour going over some of my questions and concerns, and helped me create a plan which was best fit for me and my situation which both were very important to me.
I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone use him, and his firm. Not only were they extremely Profesional and friendly, but Dr.Davis also went out of his way to help and assist me, more than any other Dr. and Clinical Evaluator would do.
If you are looking for a firm which will be there for you and assist you, Dr. Trever Davis and New Directions is the place to go to!
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. He thoroughly explained how the interview was going to go and he was very friendly and professional throughout. More people need to know about this company. I know there are plenty of people that are in a position similar to the one I was in.
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.
The entire process was respectful and prompt. Trevor took time to get to know me,
and his report was right on the mark.
Based on my assessment interaction, I was treated with respect by the people at New Directions. Trevor listened to what I had to say and was very understanding. I would definitely recommend this assessment to anyone else that needs the report.
I’m especially pleased with the professionalism, timeliness and willingness to help with specific questions/concerns regarding my general alcohol/substance abuse evaluation completed by Trevor. I will definitely be recommending this company and Trevor to anyone in my situation needing the same type of evaluation.
This service was just what I needed! I was in a rush and it provided the perfect opportunity to get my assessment done within the timeframe I needed! Highly recommended, and Trevor was very helpful, a great interviewer.
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! I would recommend them for consulting but I’m positive I won’t be back, I’m staying on track!
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. I would highly recommend New Directions to anyone needing a detailed alcohol assessment requiring a short turnaround.
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. New Direction is flexible and mobile, so I was able to get an assessment over the phone instead of driving 2 hours. Their assessment was very fair and I am very satisfied.
The services paid for next business day were exceptional, and I’m appreciative of the work done by New Directions. Highly recommended company!
Working with the professionals at New Directions was an extremely positive experience. The customer support team was very caring while scheduling the earliest possible date for services. My counselor was a very experienced professional who conducted the interview and questionnaire review expertly and efficiently. Throughout the process, the counselor expertly built rapport and encouraged me to ask questions. The final assessment report was completed ahead of schedule and I was impressed with the counselor’s follow-up.
I highly recommend the professionals at New Directions. They go out of their way to serve clients!
Pleased with my evaluation and the job done by my evaluator.
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. Mr. Davis was positive, professional, and non-judgmental. He briefed my on all aspects of the process, and offered to answer any possible questions. I was glad to have an idea of what this process would involve, and I appreciated the briefing.
Mr. Davis also asked me very effective questions, and carefully considered each answer. The clinical evaluation was a valuable, thought provoking experience. As the evaluation drew to a close, Mr. Davis informed me that he would conduct a review of the information, and send a report to me within a few days. He also provided statistics relevant to the evaluation, which were helpful in providing perspective.
I would definitely recommend New Directions to anyone in need of the services your organization provides.
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.
"Trevor took the time and effort to complete my assessment with honesty and integrity. Very knowledgeable and a good listener. I found it easy to discuss my life with him; he was understanding and NOT judgmental. Highly recommend both Trevor and New Directions!"
I was already at ease when i read about Trevor. After our conversation I was absolutely positive that his reviews were genuine 100%. This process was the painless solution to a ridiculously absurd situation I found myself in when I was faced with many false allegations. With Trevors evalution of myself and my situation I found I had no trouble at all satisfying a court by providing the complete documentation of his process. He covered all the bases. He took a stressful place in my life and made it completely worry free. Definately worth every minute and penny spent.
Trevor was very professional and friendly.
It has been a great experience..
Wonderful staff in a comfortable and therapeutic setting. 5 stars
Trevor was excellent. While the interview was very thorough, at no time did I feel like he was judging me. He also made himself accessible if I had questions or any concerns. Highly recommended!
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 received a professional yet relaxing and comfortable Mental Health Assessment. I highly recommend New Directions for their affordability as well.
I wanted to share my experience with New Directions counseling. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect from this experience but I was relieved to learn that Trevor and the folks there were professional, considerate, courteous, complete and most of all non judgemental. Trevor not only took all the information provided but he also listened to me and heard my side of the situation during my evaluation. As difficult as something like this is Trevor and New Directions made it as comfortable and fast as possible and they were very easy to work with. I highly recommend Trevor and his firm for anyone who needs an objective, honest and fair alcohol or drug assessment. Sincerely, B. Kennedy
Needed a drug and alcohol evaluation done within a very small time frame. They were amazing with how fast they got back to me and set everything up, worked with Trevor who was so kind and guided me through everything and was so willing to help. Thank you to Trevor and New Directions for everything!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Directions Counseling group is very professional. They spent much time with me to evaluate my current situation. I appreciate your professionalism and your response time. Thank you
New Directions was great to work with. Very professional, very polite, and had very quick follow ups. I highly recommend using New Directions.
I was in need of an alcohol assessment, and Trevor Davis helped me dramatically in creating a fair assessment that allowed me to constructively work on my alcohol use, while also fitting within my specific needs. I recommend New Directions Counseling to anyone who wants a fair and honest assessment through a route that offers quality customer service.
After I completed my payment the service was really fast, I got the call of the Evaluator at the expected time and my result was right in time for my court case. The staff and the Evaluator explained the process carefully and were happy to answer any questions or concerns I had.
I've had nothing but positive vibes and caring staff while visiting Directions. Trevor is sincere, direct and very easy to talk with. I came in under a stressful situation but from the moment I walked in the door I was greeted in a professional, comfortable and relaxing office. I recommended Directions Counceling to my Aunt who is dealing with a ton of stress in her marriage and my cousin who struggles with opiod addiction. This is by far a wonderful place! Thank you for what you do.
I had a comfortable and relaxed experience. The conversation went smoothly and casual. I was able to be open and honest with Trevor.
I needed an alcohol assessment for a court on 17 year old DWIs. Initially what seemed like an overwhelming task became easy when I did an internet search and found Directions and Mr. Trevor Davis. They seemed to know exactly what I needed and compiled the information in a very professional and objective fashion. I am very pleased with their final report which should satisfy the court. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone who is looking for a fair and honest assessment even if that involves further consultation.
My request was handled quickly and in a very professional manner.
Tess and Trevor were a pleasure to work with, and were able to quickly respond to my schedule.
I would highly recommend Directions Counseling.
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. I would highly recommend this company if you find yourself in need of an evaluation. Thanks
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. It was completed in a timely manner and so reassuring to know that the court could contact him in reference to it even though they didn't have to. I fully recommend this program to anyone who was a sceptic like I was/
Trevor Davis from Directions was extremely helpful in providing a court mandated alcohol assessment in a short amount of time. He made the process feel comfortable and really took his time in learning about me using different scientific methods so the results would be quite accurate. Furthermore, he took the time to explain his assessment, which was completely fair. I highly recommend him!
I did an alcohol evaluation through Trevor Davis. During the interview I found Trevor to be polite and professional. While being professional, I also found that he was easy to talk to, and found the the interview process was not as stressful as I had originally thought it might be. Trevor was also very thorough following the interview in completing the evaluation, and his treatment recommendations were practical. I also feel that he went above and beyond to clarify when I had follow up questions. Overall I feel that the whole experience was overwhelmingly positive and extremely helpful.
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. Not only was he courteous to my issues, he was also objective and open. I have the utmost appreciation for Trevor in handling my "bottom-landing" experience with care, compassion, and a hand to help me get back up again.
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. Brian was very candid throughout the entire process and made me feel comfortable and not intimidated while going through the assessments. It was very easy to tell from the beginning that Brian is a true professional. Together we were able to open my eyes to what is most important in my life with my wife and kids and Brian was able to equip me with the proper tools to move forward in my life in a positive manner. I am very thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Brian throughout this process. For anyone reading the reviews about Directions Counseling Group, I encourage you to call Brian directly if you are thinking of going to see another company. Everyone that I was able to interface with at Directions Counseling Group was a true professional. Thank you all very much for your help!
I really enjoyed this service and my interviewer was calm, understanding, and gave me great advice during the interview. I recommend this service to any seeking help.
I would like to take this opportunity to commend Directions Counseling Group for their highly professional services. The experience has been a positive one. During the entire process, the staff and counselor were attentive and supportive. They followed up with me at all times and completed the evaluation in a serious and prompt manner. I highly recommend their services.
This company and the people that work here have been nothing but extremely accommodating and helpful when I needed help the most. This organization will give you the best price and the best service for your money if you need an assessment of this nature. I have nothing but positive things to say about them, if you have any questions at all just give them a call and they'll do whatever they can to work with you. They did so for me!
If you have found yourself at the New Directions website and reading these testimonials, it is most probable that you are seeking one or more of the substance and/or behavioral services provided by Brian Davis and his highly professional team. Simply stated, look no further and contact New Directions immediately.
I am a retired senior executive who never imagined that I would ever require an alcohol assessment and yet through one evening of bad decisions, I found myself arrested for DUI and seeking confirmation for the court, that my evening of intoxication was an anomaly and not a habitual occurrence.
Fortunately, I found New Directions via a web search and my experience with them could not have been better. The registration for the test, scheduling of the evaluation and access to the final report were all made very simple. The front office was helpful, courteous and efficient and provided information or assistance whenever it was needed. The on-line testing was comprehensive but also very user friendly. My formal evaluation was conducted by Brian Davis, who began by explaining the process. He was compassionate, understanding and most importantly non-judgmental throughout our conversation. In short, he made me comfortable and it was easy to open up to him fully. I received my evaluation report promptly and was pleased with the thoroughness and accuracy of what had been written.
Admittedly, because you are reading this, you are likely stressed, a little worried and possibly frightened by whatever it is you are facing. Do yourself a favor and contact New Directions. They will provide you with the help and support you need and will do so with a level of sincere interest and compassion that will bring you peace of mind.
The Franklin County Courts ordered me to get an Alcohol Assessment as a result of my DUI. My probation officer had given me a list of places I could choose from for my assessment. I had a friend take a look, and they said they had a good experience with New Directions in the past, so I chose them and I couldn't be happier I made this choice.
The entire process from paying, filling out forms online, then meeting with a counselor at the New Directions Office, was fast and easy to complete. After the first 10 minutes of talking with my counselor, Ryan, I knew I was going to enjoy my time with him. Ryan had given me very appropriate feedback about my particular situation and asked me important questions that I had never considered before. Even though the appointment was only an hour, I was able to get a lot out of it. I'm glad I chose New Directions.
I was offered to continue seeing him outside of any court ordered program, and I'm strongly considering going back!
Just finished my chemical dependency evaluation with the staff at New Directions. I was stressed out for no good reason as the evaluator who did my assessment was very respectful, professional and did not make me feel uncomfortable. I would highly recommend these services to anyone!
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. I left feeling that I had encountered a caring and kind environment. Thank you so much!
This is a FAIR and well educated institute.
I recommend this to anyone who needs to have an assessment for counseling.
As usual, I waited till the last minute to set up an appointment. I needed it done in 24 hours to wrap up my court case, but when I called they were booked. I had gotten a call back saying that Brian would make it work. Not only did he make it work, but he made the nerve racking process of a DUI alcohol assessment very comfortable for me and that allowed me to share my past experiences much more easy. The 45 minutes flew by, I received his assessment of me along with a much appreciated email with some great advice. Procrastination paid off for the first time, very happy I chose New directions and had the opportunity to meet Brian. Thank you
I am very thankful that I found New Directions. The process was simple and quick. A huge thank you goes to Mr. Davis for being so patient with me and going above and beyond to help me and make sure the process was painless. I highly recommended New Directions to anyone that needs help.
I am very thankful for the services provided by New Directions. Mr. Davis made what would normally be an uncomfortable process less painless and was very professional. The court accepted the assessments with no questions and dismissed my case. Thanks Again New Directions!
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. Thank you Brian and Tessa! I will provide a glowing recommendation to anyone in need of your services in the future.
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. Brian brought to light issues in myself with professional honest opinions/advice that I will use to better myself and make every day in my life better going forward. I would recommend him to anyone I come across in a time of difficulty. I give him 5 out of 5 stars on every level.
New Directions treated me very well. They were very professional and helpful. I was in a tough situation and they stepped up to the plate. I would recommend them to anyone!
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 feel like myself again!
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. My boyfriend and I are on the road to recovery in our relationship and I am grateful for the counselor that helped us when we were at a fork in the road.
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. I couldn’t get a hold of anyone who understood what I needed until I found New Directions online and asked about their license
reinstatement substance abuse assessment. Finally, someone who understood what I needed. I have nothing but positive things to say about them – they were courteous, professional and seemed to genuinely care.
