**As of Monday July 20th, 2020 all monthly monitoring check-ins for diversion and probation clients will continue to take place BY TELEPHONE only, until further notice. It is your responsibility to call Choices at your regularly scheduled date and time.**
Update: As of November 25th, 2020, Choices anticipates we will continue to do check-ins by phone through March 2021, at least. Missing your TIME and/or your DATE is not acceptable. If you miss your call-in date/time, you have missed your check-in: Only a documented emergency will prompt a rescheduling of your required monthly check-in.
**As of July 20th, 2020: Until further notice, all individuals participating in Choices' evening outpatient counseling program are required to wear a mask fully covering the mouth and nose at all times while in the building**
Averhealth continues to provide UAs as scheduled, with appropriate safety measures, regarding Covid-19.
There will be no Adult Substance Abuse Education Class in the Choices Lawrence office through February 2021. PLEASE CHECK BACK EVERY FEW DAYS FOR UPDATES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

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.
