Hello. Perhaps this is a good place to present this problem I am having.
I assume that some readers/posters here have had past experience with and/or work for addiction & recovery service centers. I am looking into the legality issues of a single meeting best known as an "addictions assesment" .
I had a drug-related charge where I was recommended by the courts to obtain an addictions assesment. I went to the center that I was appointed to and met with a Mr. FooBar* , BA, ACIT. (*actual name replaced ..... BA , ACIT is this person's qualifications)
We began the meeting, he asked me questions, I gave him 100% truthful answers. He signed me up for a meeting, and informed me of what he would recommend. I asked him to fax the results to my pre-sentencing probation officer. Done.
Now I went to court, and the final sentincing went through, and I got a copy of all the paperwork that I had to sign. It says , signed and dated by my pre-trial officer (the one that got the fax) :
__BEGIN QUOTE ___
Information was recieved from [addictions center I attended] that [dr_wrong(me)
] had completed an addictions assesment and was referred to
*Level1 << that means a class or two a month for ...3 weeks..?? I forget exactly. Not so bad. Not so time consuming. Not so COSTLY. Read more....
Then I went to court for sentencing.
I feel that Mr FooBar, or someone else higher up in this agency has unjustly modified my assesment without any other consultation on my part.
In a simple question, I ask: Can these qualifiees modify my "addictions assesment" without a follow-up assesment from me, the client?
(the Mr FooBar, and another signature there...hmm whos this? Never met who owns this OTHER
I have had one meeting, with one determination on that date.
Now, when i go to my court-appointed probation officer, I am informed of a
intense outpatient? Lasting 6 months?
I felt like I could trust this Mr. FooBar BA, ACIT , for I was completely honest with everything. Honesty pays off. HRMF.

If you do not know for sure if the Mr FooBar and other qualifiedees can modify assesments in this way, please don't get me on the wrong track.
PS- (continued) You do have all
permissions to sympathize
