Choices Lawrence location, as of 9/1/18; 911 Massachusetts, Ste B2A Go through the glass door left of Chipolte's entrance, use the elevator on the left to go down one level; Choices' office is the first door on the left. Policy regarding missed monitoring meetings:
Consider your set monthly monitoring meeting date and time seriously.
**Beginning 8/1/18, Choices will not be setting “make-up”/rescheduled monitoring meetings unless the appointment was missed for a documented emergency. Oversleeping, forgetting, or other appointments elsewhere (unless relevant to an emergency) are not acceptable reasons for missing a monitoring meeting.
**Each monitoring client will be allowed two missed meetings over the course of a twelve-month supervision period, with appropriate documentation of emergency reasons.
**This IS retroactive—If you’ve already had two missed/rescheduled meetings, you’ll not be allowed further misses.
**Missed meetings otherwise will be noted as a violation of the terms and conditions of supervision, and will be referred on to the Court of jurisdiction.
Please see the "Adult Substance Abuse Education" tab for updates on the class dates for both the Olathe and Lawrence offices.
