Payment & Procedures for Court Ordered Services
To obtain an appointment for the initial evaluation it will be necessary to first complete the required paperwork. This information may be obtained by simply downloading the relevant documents from the website or I will be happy to e-mail you the documents. This way is advisable as you can do it in the comfort of your home and take the needed time. Otherwise you will need to arrive 30 minutes earlier than your appointment time to complete the forms. Payment is expected at the time of your appointment. I accept both cash, check or debit/credit card for payment of the initial evaluation. If you pay by cash please have available the exact amount. The cost for most evaluations is $120.00. However, the following exceptions apply. Substance abuse evaluations require an initial one hour evaluation, followed by second session, typically scheduled the following week, in which feedback about the assessment and treatment planning are accomplished. In rare cases certain types of evaluations may need to be extended an additional session or more if the Court, Probation, or Florida Dept. of Children and Families is requiring an evaluation to determine if some type of treatment is appropriate. The cost for each additional session and all Individual sessions is $95.00. Additionally, you will need to bring in a copy of the referral form from the Court or probation and your arrest report. If you are referred by the Florida Department of Children & Families you will need to bring in a copy of your case plan. Completing all forms, arriving on time for your appointment and fully cooperating will help insure your evaluation can be completed in one session.
