A DUI Clinical evaluation is a court-mandated evaluation, usually ordered by the sentencing judge as part of the probationary terms and conditions.

DUI Clinical Evaluation

DUI Clinical Evaluations are comprehensive assessments that an individual may undergo after receiving a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), a DWI, or a Drug related DUI. These evaluations are extremely useful because they acquiesce the two parties which are normally involved in a DUI scenario. A DUI Clinical Evaluation is useful for a probation officer/court related issues, but it is also useful for the Department of Driver Services (DDS)/Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). It is very important to know that these are two completely separate entities, and it is totally possible to have everything taken care of for one and nothing for the other. This is where a DUI Clinical Evaluation really shines.

If you have received a DUI, it is likely that your probation officer will give you a list of companies they typically work with, and they will tell you to make sure to get an Alcohol and Drug Evaluation. This is not necessarily wrong because it does work for them, but as soon as you try and get your license back the DDS/DMV will tell you need to undergo a DUI Clinical Evaluation which means you will have to pay to have another evaluation done when you could have done the DUI Clinical Evaluation in the first place. A company that knows what they are doing will always ask you what your charge was first because they will be trying to give you what you actually need. Unfortunately, this is the world that we are talking about and there are many companies who will attempt to swindle you at every opportunity.

DUI Clinical Evaluations are comprehensive assessments that an individual may undergo after receiving a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), a DWI, or a Drug related DUI.


Here are some major things to look out for when choosing a company to do an evaluation:

Is the evaluator certified to do what they are saying they are going to do, and is that evaluation useful for your particular scenario?

  • check Many companies will provide certificates that at the end of the day are just a piece of paper and are basically worthless

  • Is this evaluator’s price far lower than other similar companies?

  • check DUI Clinical Evaluations are typically a price that is set by the state. If this company has evaluations for $20 that means you are likely spending $20 for a piece of paper.

How long will it take for you to receive your evaluation

  • check This is important for scheduling conflicts. If your DUI Clinical Evaluation is due in one day but the companies turn around is 5 days, then you can either ask for expediency or find a company who does them more quickly. If your paperwork and invoice has been taken care of correctly AACS Counseling provides same day DUI Clinical Evaluation results.

  • What is their response when you ask them about the possible outcomes of the evaluation?

  • check DUI Clinical Evaluations are done to see what sort of recommendation might be given to you. Recommendations can vary from case to case, but a quick red flag is someone who tells you that treatment is 100% necessary. Many companies will even charge a lesser rate for a DUI Clinical Evaluation explicitly knowing that they will be giving you a long term of treatment.

DUI Clinical Evaluation

These are just a few questions to make sure you have answers to prior to starting you DUI Clinical Evaluation. DUI Clinical Evaluations can change in a few circumstances. Dependent on the state where you reside, if you have more than one DUI in a certain span of time you may have to undergo a Multiple DUI Clinical Evaluation. Another scenario you can find yourself in is if you have received a DUI in a state other than the one where you reside. If this is the case you will need to undergo an Out-of-State DUI Clinical Evaluation which is far more lengthy and costs significantly more than a regular DUI Clinical Evaluation.

A DUI Clinical Evaluation is typically the only route to getting your license back if it has been suspended for a DUI. This is usually just one of many stipulations that are given to you in order to qualify for your license once more. DUI Clinical Evaluation recommendations come in many forms, but are normally in the form of a span of time needed to be completed in an ASAM Level I treatment program. DUI’s are dissimilar to other infractions because the amount of treatment you have to complete is normally a length of time as opposed to a number of sessions or classes that need to be completed. For example:

John was arrested after being pulled over for possession of Marijuana and had to undergo an Alcohol and Drug Evaluation. After completing the recommendation John was told he needed to complete 17 ASAM Level I treatment classes. Luckily for him he found a company who does these sessions 5 times a week! John was able to finish his treatment program in less than a month!

John was arrested for a DUI after leaving a bar and crashing his vehicle into a parked car. John had to undergo a DUI Clinical Evaluation. After completing the recommendation John was told he needed to complete a Long-Term DUI ASAM level I treatment program for 4-12 months. John noticed that the company he was doing the classes with was doing sessions 5 times a week! John asked if he could get his classes done more quickly if he attended multiple sessions. Unfortunately, because of his DUI John could only receive credit for 1 session per week. Luckily John did not have any trouble throughout his treatment and was able to finish after just 4 months. John made a friend with a classmate who started at the same time. When they both went in to get their certificates John tested negative for all substances, but his friend tested positive for alcohol. John was able to finish but his friend ended up having to stay in treatment due to him not sticking to the treatment protocols.

Frequently Asked Question


A DUI Clinical Evaluation is a one-on-one substance abuse assessment about convictions or arrests related to driving while under the influence (DUI). The evaluation assesses potentially addictive and substance abuse behaviors for various substances and their correlation to an individual's habit of driving under the influence.

Driving under the Influence is a serious offense that has taken many lives each year. Preliminary estimates show that 20,160 people died on America's roads through June 2021. Those numbers do not account for a full calendar year. Many of you were not involved in accidents and are not responsible for the loss of life, but the more you participate in high-risk choices, the greater the possibility of harm or death. After a DUI conviction, you have to go through a formal DUI evaluation called the Alcohol and Drug Uniform Report. This assessment aims to look at your past behavior with drugs and alcohol and measure the possibility you'll drive impaired again.

A DUI evaluation measures an individual's history of choices, current choices, and the likelihood of future behavior of high-risk decisions.

During a DUI Evaluation, you can expect to participate in a face-to-face interview with an evaluator who will ask you about your current and past alcohol and drug use. If there are any past DUI arrests or convictions on your record, you should be prepared to answer questions about them. A drug screen is requested to finalize and correctly identify risk levels in many cases. The evaluator's recommendations for you will be recorded in a written report.

An Out of State DUI Evaluation is specific to anyone who has been arrested, convicted, or charged with a DUI in a state outside of the state where they currently reside and hold a driver's license. If I lived in California and got a DUI while crossing through Arizona, then I need an Out of State DUI Evaluation.
