Can anyone tell me what all is involved in the addiction evaluation?
Some people end up having multi day evaluations but mine was one day, about 4 hours, consisting of 3 or 4 very long (100-300 question) multiple choice tests. The tests were "graded" by machine, I assume, because he had results during that same appointment, and the second part of the evaluation was him reviewing the results of my tests (without telling me anything though) and just talking to me, for maybe 30 minutes. The talk was about why I was there, my relationships with my kids, husband, other family, my childhood, siblings etc.
The tests were like those personality tests that ask the same questions a lot of different ways. About what you like, what annoys you, scenarios are given and you say which thoughts or actions you'd probably have/do. He then sent a summary with his evaluation and recommendations to TPAPN.
