Pine Grove staff gathered on June 28 for a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the brand-new Pine Grove Evaluation Center, located at Lincoln Center. The new center will offer a location for comprehensive evaluations for addiction, vocational and behavioral issues on an outpatient or residential basis.
At the center, patients can receive four different types of evaluation – Comprehensive Evaluation, Addiction Evaluation, Psycho-Sexual Evaluation and Neuropsychological Testing. Comprehensive Evaluation is a 3-day multidisciplinary outpatient evaluation for individuals who display behavior that interferes with smooth functioning of an organization, problems with professional ethics, decreased workplace functioning or other concerns. Addiction Evaluation and Psycho-Sexual Evaluation are residential programs that last 3 or 5 days, respectively, and include overnight accommodations and meals at Pine Grove. These evaluation programs offer help for individuals who have addiction or psycho-sexual issues. The Neuropsychological Testing program includes 6-8 hours of testing by a highly trained neuropsychologist for individuals who may have cognitive impairment or symptoms of adult ADHD.
"Pine Grove has offered addiction and vocational evaluations for more than nine years to clients from 43 U.S. states,” said Debbie Sanford, Forrest General Chief Behavioral Health Services Officer. “We are pleased to expand this service by dedicating staff and a new home at the Lincoln Center specifically for our Evaluation Center.”
For each of these evaluation programs, the cost of evaluation is applied toward the cost of any treatment program the patient chooses to complete at Pine Grove.
