Every year thousands of Ohioans have legal, workplace, or school violations as a result of alcohol or drug use. While a violation itself may not be indicative of a substance abuse problem, the court, employer or school often require a professional assessment. Bob Garrity is a drug and alcohol counselor who regularly provides professional drug and alcohol assessments. Cleveland, Ohio residents, and those in surrounding areas, will love that he’s sensitive, professional and works in a timely manner.
Bob realizes the circumstances of a court-ordered or employer-required evaluation can be stressful and upsetting. He also offers mental health assessments and will provide you with prompt and discreet service to help you move beyond the immediate reporting concern and on to the the next steps to move forward.
Common Alcohol or Drug Assessment Situations:
• Alcohol assessment after a DUI / OVI charge
• Positive drug screen or workplace violation
• Evaluation for DMV / BMV license reinstatement
• School drug/alcohol rule violation
• Physician requested assessment
• Family members expressing concern
• Court ordered alcohol assessment &/or drug assessment
• Self referral if concerned about your own use
After meeting with Bob, who also works as an attorney in addition to doing drug and alcohol assessments, clients, will promptly receive a report with a professional recommendation. Recommendations for treatment, when appropriate, will include referrals for the appropriate level of care. Many people need no level of care at all, as it will have been determined that they have simply made a one-time mistake in life. Some clients will need 12 step meetings: Alcoholics Anonymous; Narcotics Anonymous; Heroin Anonymous; others will require individual counseling and some will need formal group substance use disorder treatment.
