Court and Secretary of State Evaluations
The first required step for all who are charged with a DUI is to complete a Drug and Alcohol Evaluation. Its purpose is to assess how your alcohol and/or drug use is a risk to public safety. Evaluations will consider four factors: driving history, chemical test results, a written assessment instrument, and a clinical interview with a certified counselor. Individuals are assigned to one of four risk classifications based on the results of the assessment: Minimal, Moderate, Significant, or High. The Court and/or the Office of the Secretary of State require the following specific intervention or treatment services for each of the risk categories:
- Minimal Risk: Completion of a minimum 10 hours of Risk Education.
- Moderate Risk Completion of a minimum 10 hours of Risk Education and 12 hours of Early Intervention Counseling.
- Significant Risk Completion of a minimum 10 hours of Risk Education and 20 hours of Substance Abuse Treatment.
- High Risk: Completion of a minimum 75 hours of Substance Abuse Treatment.
