Alcohol/Drug Clinical Evaluation
Also known as ‘DUI Clinical Evaluation.’
Effective July 1, 2008, all first time DUI offenders are required to obtain a clinical evaluation, unless waived by the court. DUI offenders who get a second or subsequent DUI within a 10-year period are required to get a clinical evaluation, and if indicated by the evaluation, complete a substance abuse treatment program.
An Alcohol/Drug Clinical Evaluation is required for charges by the state for driving while under the influence (DUI) or a DUI charge that has been reduced to reckless driving. DUI Clinical Evaluations are regulated by the state of Georgia DUI Intervention Program for all persons charged with a DUI.

What is an evaluation?
DUI Clinical Evaluations is a 1-on-1 session between you and a substance abuse professional. All sessions are confidentially administered by appointment and assess potentially addictive and substance abuse behaviors for a variety of substances, including methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, alcohol, and several others.
Why would I complete an evaluation?
If you are charged with DUI, Reckless Driving, Possession or BUI, then you may be required to complete an evaluation by court, probation and/or attorney. Some attorneys encourage individuals to obtain an evaluation prior to appearing in court, so they can show a good faith effort. Please make sure you discuss your situation with one of our Clinical Evaluators to determine the best course of action for your case.
