    On our initial evaluation for outpatient service, the clinician utilizes tools to evaluate the client such as the the ASAM.   Should these tools that were utilized by the clinician be released as part of the main report for the evaluation?

    Hi, I believe anything that is utilized to treat the patient and is part of your legal record should be released.

    Sure. Our ASAM is imbedded in our clinical assessment and that’s part of our DRS.
