DUI evaluations

If you received a DUI, the court usually requires that you be assessed based on your drinking and alcohol usage. In Northern Illinois, Cook County requires that you complete your evaluation at Central States Institute which is located in the courthouse. Lake County requires that you go to NICASA. All other counties in Illinois allow you to get an evaluation at any Department of Alcohol and Substance Abuse licensed treatment facility.


Once you complete a DUI evaluation, you will have classes. The amount of classes you have is dependent on your lifetime Drug and Alcohol use history. But no matter where your evaluation was completed, you can still choose the treatment provider to complete your classes.


We can schedule your DUI evaluation within seven days and most of our clients will walk out the door with two copies. The cost for a DUI evaluation for court purposes is $150.
