I can't say enough great things about the Diversion Center and their processes. I was so impressed with the scheduling staff. They were available via text, phone, and email. They asked questions so I could make sure I was getting the right assessment and were able to schedule same-day! They talked me through the process and then follow-up with me on the paperwork to let me know they received it. Derek Collins worked with me on my assessments. The very best thing is he was real. It didn't feel like talking to a robot or just someone going down a list of questions. He was honest and authentic. That made me feel like it was a safe space to be honest and authentic. He listened to me. It was the perfect mix of professional mixed with human compassion and understanding. I would recommend anyone seeking any assessment to reach out to the Diversion Center immediately.

I have nothing but great things to say. My experience was painless. Follow the program as told and you will come out on the other side. Everyone deserves a second chance why not let them help. “Stay negative people”

Derek was super easy to talk to and was very genuine. I had a lot of reservations about all of this because normally you get these people that don't understand the struggle and you just feel like you're being judged the whole time. But he really related to me and I appreciated what he had to say.
