Alcohol & Drug Evaluation

A Clinical Evaluation or Substance Abuse Assessment is conducted by a licensed or certified professional who specializes in the field of substance abuse and addiction. In these situations the individual has been mandated to have an evaluation following an alcohol or drug related arrest (i.e. DUI, MIP, Possession, Disorderly Conduct). The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the most appropriate next step, if any, related to intervention or treatment.

The evaluation typically consists of a face-to-face interview, a review of your NEEDS Assessment results from the DUI/Risk Reduction School (if attended), a review of your Lifetime Arrest Report or 7-year DDS (Department of Driver Services) Report and any other assessment instruments deemed appropriate by the evaluator to complete a thorough evaluation.

This generally takes between 60-90 minutes. In addition, an alcohol and drug screen may be given if required, indicated or requested. A written evaluation report will be submitted to the individual or agency indicated on the release of information form within seven days of the completion of the evaluation.

CLINICAL EVALUATION FEES: Alcohol & Drug Evaluations for DUI arrests are $100; all other clinical evaluations are $75. We offer optional drug screens as part of the evaluation. There is a $45 fee for this service. Payment is required at the time of service. We accept cash, check and all major credit cards.
