Substance Abuse Assessments/Clinical Evaluations

When an individual is charged with a DUI, they may be required to complete a clinical evaluation. A clinical evaluation is a face-to-face interview conducted by a DBHDD approved licensed or certified professional who works in the addiction field.

Based on their professional judgement, the clinical evaluator may recommend treatment. Treatment means attendance and participation in the type of program recommended by the evaluator. Treatment is required if determined necessary by the clinical evaluator.

Substance Abuse Assessments/Evaluations may also be required by an attorney, probation officers, or the Department of Family and Children Services. Call 706-356-5817 to schedule an appointment.
