DUI Evaluation
Drug and Alcohol Evaluation
License Reinstatement

In Illinois, anyone arrested for DUI must undergo a DUI drug and alcohol evaluation before they can be sentenced for the DUI offense. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the degree of the defendant’s alcohol and/or drug use and what risk that poses to public safety.

There are two different processes:

for the court, including out-of-state cases,

and Secretary of State license reinstatement.

Whatever the process, we have the answers you need.

If you need a DUI drug and alcohol evaluation, you need to come to Counseling Center of Illinois. We can perform your evaluation and provide you with follow-up DUI classes as well.

You will need the report from the night of the arrest.

It should include: date of arrest, time of arrest, and the results of a breathalyzer test or a drug test.

WHAT TO EXPECT
AT DUI EVALUATION

The drug and alcohol evaluation in Chicago will take about two hours. It will include an interview and questionnaires focusing on past and current alcohol and drug use.

After the DUI alcohol and drug assessment is complete, you will be given a risk level recommendation of which DUI class program is best for your needs.

  • High Risk
  • Significant Risk
  • Moderate Risk
  • Minimal Risk

For more information about risk assessments, visit our DUI Classes page.

Note: In all cases, it is at the discretion of the Court to determine what type of recommendation, if any, will ultimately become a part of the sanction for the DUI offense. However, if the drug and alcohol evaluation is for the Office of the Secretary of State in relation to the return of full or limited driving privileges, you will be required to complete any recommendations contained in the drug and alcohol assessment.

You have the right to refuse the completed alcohol and drug evaluation, to withdraw from the process at any time, or to seek a second opinion by obtaining another DUI evaluation. However, any information provided may be released to the Court or the Office of the Secretary of State, upon request. If the DUI evaluation and DUI alcohol assessment procedure is not completed, notice will be sent to the Court or the Office of the Secretary of State.

I had the great honor of interning at Counseling Centers of Illinois. I did my research before joining the center and laughed when I read that the center prides itself as a place that cares and help intern not only learn but also helps in finding jobs. I thought that was a lie and they only said that to entice people. I was proved wrong. I was well trained even though it was in the middle of a raging pandemic and not for once was in the dark about everything.The weekly supervision was on point and Anna takes her time to answer every and all question. Her goal is to make sure we are well trained and that showed itself every single time.Anna and the other staff members showed they really cared about me and not only ensured I had a great experience but they also showed they cared about me as a person and my professional development.I was linked with past interns and they all had nice things to say about Anna and the center and I am forever grateful for the experience. Anna is truly a great supervisor and her care and support go beyond the internship time.I will definitely recommend this center for anyone because they match their words with action.I truly had a great learning experience and I have Anna and all the other hardworking staff and colleagues to thank.

I interned here for both my Practicum and internship and would highly recommend this site to other emerging mental health professionals. You’ll gain a lot of different experience here conducting various evaluations, as well as individual and group counseling services and case management. Anna and Shana are both really helpful and knowledgeable but will also provide you with enough autonomy to help you grow, develop, and hone in on your skills as you become your own clinician.

As a Master intern during the year of 2018- 2019 CCI was such a wonderful experience and opportunity to learn, and develop, multiple skills in the Substance Abuse community. The professionalism and ethical setting at Counseling Center of Illinois has taught me so much that I would recommend this place to anyone. My experience here has been profoundly rewarding. I'm so grateful for the opportunity and all that I had gained in my training as well as the networking that has be developed with other interns and staff.Keisha Garrett MA Clinical Mental Health Counseling

My internship with Anna at the Counseling Center of Illinois was amazing. I was able to get very broad experience in all the core functions of addiction counseling. We were given a lot of responsibility and opportunities to experience and practice individual and group counseling, assessments, case management and essential administrative work. Her staff was very knowledgeable and supportive of interns. Anna provided weekly supervision, which involved important opportunities to debrief and analyze our experiences.

The Counseling Center of Illinois is a fantastic place to earn your hours for your internship. I began interning at The Counseling Center of Illinois late summer 2019 and it was one of the best experiences you can ask for. The staff is a pleasure to work with and you gain wonderful and much needed experience to enter the work field. The internship provided guidance and experience that prepared me to be confidant and knowledgeable. Hours for my internship were readily available and I was able to accrue them without any hesitation. The Counseling Center of Illinois is an AMAZING place to join!!!!

I am having marital issues, it's in the courts at this stage, really wish I knew then what I had learned these past 5 weeks... I took 2 classes at the same time and spent 2 hours every thursday with Andrew going over anger management and parenting, the classes should be a requirement for anyone that is married, the 500 dollars I spent on both will be insignificant if I have an opportunity to exercise what I have learned with my wife. The one on one option is something I was not able to find elsewhere and I called about 10 places given by google results... Andrew was exhausting himself making sure the course was as applicable as possible to my situation. The document are available on the internet but organized and presented in a fashion that permits constructive self improvement. I wish someone advised me to have taken these courses before. Looking at the other reviews I may need to disclose I went to the Milwaukee Avenue location just north of Irving Park but cannot believe the other locations are worse as I have met management and they are sincere and honestly wish to only improve the lives of people. Who ever wrote the negative reviews probably didn't take the anger management courses but should.The parenting class, unbelievable how many things I could have done better. It's our children, they deserve the best and 5 hours of my life is nothing compared to the positives these courses will have on their and my wife's life.

The therapy sessions were interactive and interesting. The 2 and 1/2 hours sessions flew by. My counselor Matthew was great. Easy to talk to. My first DUI. I felt the $850.00 was very affordable compared to others. I would recommend this place to others who’ve made the mistake of drinking and driving. I’m grateful no one was hurt and killed with my dui. I’ve learned plenty from this experience. I thank the people of this center. And getting pulled over and arrested. Lesson learned. Again highly recommended.

I worked with Anna J to do my updated evaluation and she prepared me so well that I went into my informal hearing ready! I was so ready I completed my hearing with ease and found out 2 months later that I got my license fully reinstated! Not an RDP, but my full license! I'm forever grateful to Anna and the Counseling Center of Illinois.

"Great counselors and administrative staff." I really felt comfortable and welcomed. They helped me to address a lot of underlined issues I had. If you have any questions or don't understand something just ask and they will be glad to sit with you and explain. Overall, this is the best treatment center I've attended.

I had an out of state DUI and I didn't know I needed a hearing. I finished my classes and I went to get and evaluation to a different agency because t was close to my home. I regret doing that because nobody really talked to me and helped me in anything. I went back to this agency and I got help. I like the counselors and they go out of they way to help everyone. Please don't waste your time going anywhere else. It's not just the money but a lot of time wasted.

I wanted to get my license reinstated and I called a lot of places. Many of them couldn’t answer my question because my situation is a lot more complicated than others. I got my DUI from a different state and I had difficulty obtaining a license in IL. The counselors from the State Location not only prepared a good evaluation but they helped me understand the whole process of the SOS hearing and I was able to get my license in just one hearing. These counselors are not only professional but they also care about their clients. Try calling a few places and then you will know what I’m talking about.
