    DUIs don't necessarily mean chemical dependency. Could mean problems with judgement, maturity, lack of foresight, etc. All of that is for a licensed psych professional to sort out. My evaluation in Dallas was $100, lasted an hour and did not include a drug test.

    Hi!! Her name is Wendy (won't post last name) and she's in Dallas. Affordable and completely unbiased. She's on (or was was a year ago) the BON approved list. She found that I don't have a chemical dependency bc I don't.. If you do, that's a different story. Good luck! If you have any other questions for me, please feel free to ask!

    Oh, and by the way, sometimes people are really out to get you. It can be seen as an easy excuse, but it does happen.

    Hey Lashley, I will gladly give you her info. You don't have enough posts to send you a PM, so you will have to give me your email address. I won't post the counselor's info here... I'm sure you understand.

    Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

    Yes, Richardson! He was the most expensive one I called. My evaluation was really laid back and didn't take more than an hour. It was a truly unbiased evaluation. I was so afraid to have this done b/c I was sure that anyone I chose off the BON preferred list would "find" something wrong with me so they could order me into TPAPN. I was found to not have a substance abuse problem, so it turned out great!

    No, I didn't use insurance (didn't have insurance at the time). I went to my evaluator in Dallas, paid $100 cash and that was the end of it. I don't have my list anymore, but I called all of the TXBON approved evaluators in the DFW area and I know I talked to at least two who only charge $100. I called one who charges $800, but that was b/c he does a full psych plus chemical dependency evaluation. He is also either a MD or a PhD, and they charge more. My evaluator is an RN, LPC.

    Dallas. The chem dependency evaluator I went to was/is on the TXBON preferred list. Who the heck was going to charge you $1500? Someone in Dallas?

    Sorry, posted twice!

    $1500 for an evaluation?!?? Mine was $100 in the DFW area. Did you do it yet??

    Haha yeah, my chemical dependency evaluator did not even know about EEP, and I found her on the TXBON approved list!

    I will let you know how it goes; I figure it can't hurt to ask!

    Have you ever heard of someone being released early from TPAPN or EEP for "good behavior"? I am thinking about requesting early release at my 6 month mark in EEP (I have a 1 year contact). The worst my case manager can say is "No", right?
