of an outpatient treatment program for addiction, domestic violence or
anger management is not a Teras Outpatient Program endorsement the
person completing will be violence or other high risk behavior free.
Reports of progress are primarily based on client self report and
clinician observations in the treatment setting only. Teras group
facilitators and clinicians are not licensed psychologist or medical
doctors and will not be accepted as expert witnesses in a court of law.
Violence, driving under the influence and abusive anger are always a
choice. A completion certificate is not admissible in court as evidence
one is "cured" of the abusive or risky behavior, will be safe to parent,
drive a vehicle or remain in an abuse free relationship.
