All First DUI Offender Clients
Please Read Carefully

First time DUI offenders are required, as a condition of license reinstatement, to get a clinical evaluation, and if indicated by the evaluation, complete a substance abuse program. These requirements, effective July 1st, 2008 are in addition to all other existing requirements for license reinstatement. Under this new law, the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) is responsible for approving clinical evaluators and treatment providers and establishing regulations for implementing these requirements.

You must complete the DUI Risk Reduction Program (DUI School of 20 hours of classroom instruction) before getting the clinical evaluation.

The clinical evaluation consists of a clinical interview, a review of your NEEDS assessment results from the DUI School, and any other assessment instruments deemed appropriate by the evaluator to complete a thorough evaluation. Only an approved evaluator from DBHDD registry of clinical evaluators can complete your clinical evaluation. You will be given a Clinical Evaluation Agreement/Contract that informs you of services you are entitled to as part of the evaluation process. If the evaluation results in a treatment recommendation, the clinical evaluator must show you a list of approved providers (DBHDD Registry of Treatment Providers). The evaluator will recommend a level of care. The evaluator cannot tell you to go to a specific treatment provider. The evaluator cannot determine the exact number of weeks you have to attend treatment. If the evaluator determines there is no need for treatment, the evaluator will submit a case presentation to DBHDD for review. If approved, DBHDD will provide the client with a "Requirements met" form, which can be submitted to the Department of Driver's Services (DDS) for license reinstatement.


You must choose a treatment provider from the DBHDD Registry of Treatment Providers who is permitted to deliver the ASAM Level of care recommended by the clinical evaluator. ASAM Level I - Short Term Program is a 6-12 week, 18 hours minimum. ASAM Level I Long Term Program is a three to nine hour treatment service per week. The length of treatment is up to up to one year. A treatment review occurs when 17 consecutive weeks of treatment has been completed. A decision will then be made for you to continue with more counseling or complete the treatment program. You will be given a Treatment agreement/contract that informs you all requirements for successful completion of the program. It is the responsibility of the treatment provider to determine the length of treatment and the number of hours and weeks of the treatment. The treatment program may have additional requirements to be met before you are considered as having completed treatment. Each individual treatment provider or agency determines additional services. Finally, you must have satisfied all fees to the treatment provider in order to receive your "treatment completion" form, which can be submitted to DDS for license reinstatement.

NOTE: As part of a court order, only a judge can tell you to go to a particular treatment program.
