Mobile Evaluation Services: Innovative Substance Use Evaluation Service Revolutionizes Access for Clients

Industry: Legal Services

Recognizing a need for more efficient and accessible service, Jyll Newell eliminates the barriers while empowering the client

Burlington, IA (PRUnderground) April 10th, 2024

Jyll Newell, a seasoned substance use counselor, has launched a groundbreaking venture, Mobile Evaluation Services, to address the critical need for accessible substance use evaluations. After years of witnessing the challenges people faced in obtaining timely evaluations, Newell recognized the imperative for a more efficient and client-centric approach.

Mobile Evaluation Services, established on 12/11/2023, embodies Newell’s vision of streamlining the evaluation process. Unlike traditional methods that had clients waiting in long queues, hoping for an assessment, Newell’s service offers scheduled appointment times, ensuring every client is seen promptly.

One of the distinguishing features of Mobile Evaluation Services is flexibility. Clients can opt for either in-person evaluations at an approved location or convenient telehealth appointments. This innovative approach eliminates transportation barriers and empowers clients to access evaluations from the comfort of their homes.

Moreover, Newell’s commitment to impartiality sets Mobile Evaluation Services apart. Unaffiliated with any treatment facility, Newell prioritizes the client’s well-being above all else. With a focus on providing accurate assessments tailored to individual needs, Newell ensures clients receive the appropriate level of care, whether it entails treatment or not.

“I saw firsthand the obstacles clients faced in obtaining substance use evaluations,” says Newell. “Mobile Evaluation Services aims to alleviate these challenges by offering a more accessible and client-centered approach.”

As a licensed and certified professional with a master’s in psychology and extensive experience in the field, Newell brings a wealth of expertise to Mobile Evaluation Services. Her credentials include being an International Alcohol and Drug Counselor (IADC) and approval by the Department of Transportation for conducting evaluations.

Mobile Evaluation Services not only facilitates evaluations but also assists clients in navigating the necessary paperwork for license reinstatement, further demonstrating Newell’s dedication to supporting clients through every step of their journey towards recovery and independence.  For more information contact Jyll Newell at 319-759-4480 or visit her website at

Meet the owner, Jyll Newell:

I opened Mobile Evaluation Services on 12/11/2023. I decided to open my own business after years of working as a substance use counselor in both inpatient and outpatient facilities. I saw the need for a better way to help those needing substance use evaluations. I saw that clients were having to stand in a line and hope that they could get an evaluation done because it was on a first-come-first-serve basis. I saw clients trying to get services who were turned away and had to take off work again to come back the next day hoping to get seen and stand in line again. I also saw clients who had a hard time getting rides to the evaluation that could not return the next day if they weren’t seen because they had no way to get there. I knew there had to be a way to make this process easier for everyone and that is when Mobile Evaluation Services began emerging. My goal is to provide quality evaluations while making it easier for the client by offering to come to them at an approved location, or through telehealth services. Through my years of experience working in this field, I also saw that once the client had completed the requirements, they would go to the Department of Transportation and find that the facility never filed the required paperwork so that the client could begin getting their license reinstated. Many times, the counselor they saw was no longer at the facility and this created more obstacles for the client. Mobile Evaluation Services prides itself on filing the required paperwork in a prompt manner. Letters to attorneys or other legal entities, progress reports to the court, filing with the DOT: whatever is needed to speed the process along so the client can resume their independence is done in a professional and timely manner. I have a master’s in psychology with an emphasis in addictions, am an International Alcohol and Drug Counselor (IADC) and am licensed by the state of Iowa as well as certified by the DOT to provide substance use evaluations. My years of experience in the field have given me a vast knowledge of services within Iowa and Illinois and I am happy to refer the client to the agency of their choice should they be recommended for treatment. I am not affiliated with any treatment facility.

My Credentials:

  • Master’s in psychology with an emphasis in addictions
  • International Alcohol and Drug Counselor (IADC)
  • Approved by the DOT to conduct substance use evaluations

What Stands Out:

  1. Scheduled appointment times so that clients are guaranteed to be seen.
  2. Telehealth or in person appointments are available where I go to the client, which makes it easier for the client.
  3. I am not affiliated with any treatment facility, which means that I have no gained interest in signing people up for treatment.
  4. Years of experience in the field, and I realize that not everyone who needs an evaluation needs treatment. I will always put a client in the lowest level of care possible based on their needs if they are recommended for treatment.
