Did you talk to the lawyer who represented you? There may be a legitimate reason for why the recommendation was changed. In most courts, you are going to be stuck with the 'new' recommendation. In theory, you could go to a new agency and get a second opinion, but many courts are reluctant to accept second opinions.
You may have a civil claim against the treatment agency for violating your privacy, if you did not sign a release to the court.
