The answer depends on why the chemical use assessment is necessary. You must consult with an attorney regarding the particular nature of your case.

As long as you receive the evaluation from an accredited Chemical Dependency Evaluator, the courts and Corrections Departments usually have no objection. Sometimes there are objections if it is believed that you will not be truthful with the Evaluator. As long as the professional is given all the background information, there is no reason to choose one professional over another.

This depends on the case details. Often a chem eval can be done at several different locations. You may need approval from the court or probation officer however.
