What to Include on Evaluation Forms
Recidivism, or a person’s likelihood of committing one crime multiple times throughout their lives, is a major area of concern in Michigan. Recent statistics of driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol charges on the rise has not helped loosen the state’s policies. As a result, mandatory substance abuse evaluation forms have become more prevalent and more detailed.
Some of the information required on a substance abuse evaluation form includes:
- Any reported history of treatments or relapse
- Complete criminal record of substance-related crimes
- Attendance to substance abuse support groups
- Diagnosis from doctors or psychologists
- Evaluator test results or prognoses
- Future support requirements
- Day-to-day living arrangements that may promote substance abuse
- Drugs prescribed for medical treatments
