The Probation Officer shall disclose the pre-sentence report or any previous mental health evaluations or reports to the treatment provider;

As directed by the Probation Officer, the defendant shall, if he is financially able to, pay all or part of the costs of treating his psychological/psychiatric disorders to the aftercare contractor during the period of community supervision.
