What is a DUI alcohol evaluation?
A DUI alcohol evaluation, also called an alcohol assessment, allows a trained professional to determine whether an individual might be struggling with an alcohol problem. It’s often used in a legal setting to decide on the next steps, such as after a DUI charge. When charged with driving under the influence, most states will require you to undergo this type of evaluation.
Evaluators consider an individual’s occupational and relationship history as well as habits with use of alcohol or drugs. The evaluation aims to determine if someone is likely to have more DUI incidents, and needs help with alcohol-related issues.
Some states require this evaluation to occur after an initial arrest but before appearing in court. When this process is complete, the judge can consider the completed evaluation when sentencing the individual. In other states, a DUI evaluation could help someone get deferred sentencing to avoid a DUI conviction altogether.
Will the courts accept an online DUI evaluation?
In most cases, yes, the court will accept the results of an online evaluation when there is a licensed professional conducting and signing off professionally on the final report document Professional online alcohol and drug evaluations are becoming increasingly common, offering convenience and affordability.
