Florida evaluator

I got my list of evaluators to choose from for IPN...any recommendations?

I got LW from Tampa, GR and ST from Gainesville.

Everybody (and I do mean everybody!) seems to get Gainesville as an option. My experience there was that stuff that I never said and did not even have the base hint of truth to it, somehow made it into my eval. If I wasn’t so familiar with these people’s non problem with bending the truth or heck, outright lying, I would say they mixed up mine with some other poor schmuck unfortunate enough to think these ****** actually care. (Spoiler alert: they don’t. It’s all about the Benjamins)
I’m not sure who the one in Tampa might be but I have my suspicions. Frankly, I’ve never heard good things about any of this scam’s ‘approved evaluators.’ To be blunt, I think (opinion ahead, you’ve been warned) the ones that are ‘approved’ are the ones that are willing to write whatever crap is necessary to trap a person into a contract and/or treatment (hopefully within a facility/program that said evaluator has a financial interest in.)

Never have I known of anyone who gets out the other side of these so-called evaluations without a ‘recommendation’ of monitoring or more.
I’m inclined to believe that IPN is going to do whatever the heck they want to do to suck as much money out of you as possible, while holding your license over your head like a carrot. The only purpose of these stupid ‘evaluations’ is to lend a supposed air of legitimacy to their little scam operation. Your actual needs, mental health or recovery be damned.
Your best bet is to go in there, answer thier questions as succinctly as possible. Don’t lie but don’t verbally vomit your life history either. If you admit to having smoked a joint in high school and never again after, you will still be diagnosed with ‘moderate substance abuse disorder’ or some such idiocy. Stick with the facts of the current issue and don’t trust them any further than you can kick them. Good luck.
