Outreach Assessment (OA): Judges, probation officers, treatment staff and others make client assessment, screening and evaluation referrals to determine whether or not intervention, counseling or treatment are needed. And, when warranted, it enables problem severity to be matched with treatment intensity. Outreach Assessment is a self-report test written at a high 5th to low 6th grade reading level. It consists of 105 questions and a checklist of available services that clients may want to participate in. It takes 30 minutes to complete. Outreach Assessment contains 5 scales or measures: 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Violence Scale, 3. Alcohol Scale, 4. Drugs Scale and 5. Stress Management Scale. Outreach Assessment is a multiscale test that clarifies the client’s willingness to work collaboratively with staff. It clarifies substance (alcohol and other drugs) use or abuse, acting out (anger, temper, rage and violence), and impaired stress management. When present, these problems can be disruptive, and when left untreated they usually get worse. Yet, with prompt intervention, counseling or treatment these individuals can lead problem free and productive lives. For more information visit www.outreach-assessment.com.
