How We Do It

How We Do It

Flexible hours are just one of the benefits of using video technology. Our NJ licensed clinicians are prepared to meet the special demands of court ordered adult assessments in a timely, efficient process of the highest quality. Employing evidence based methods our therapists will assess for the presence of substance abuse, mental health, cognitive, and general life adjustment challenges. A completed report, in the same standardized format used by NJ TASC, will include a comprehensive treatment/action plan and recommendation for additional services, if indicated, by ASAM criteria. The evaluation and report will be completed within 72 hours. Clients will schedule their own appointment with little wait. Their security and privacy are carefully protected meeting HIPAA requirements.

With ten years of experience providing drug and alcohol evaluations (as well assessing mental health) for pre-trial interventions, probation and Drug Courts, the staff can handle most issues requiring a diagnosis, treatment planning and recommendations.

Without risking conflict of interest we are able to provide this secure easily accessible service. Our virtual office practice is designed for clients who are able to access and use the internet. We expect this will meet the needs of many clients particularly those who prefer to protect their privacy. Clients are expected to pay for the service when the appointment is set. Our goal is to assist in creating a smooth, accessible and meaningful process that will support successful outcomes, maintaining respect for the client and the court.

Before beginning an online session the client must meet the following criteria:

• A room where privacy is available.
