Substance Abuse Screening
If convicted, a first-time DUI offender or a repeat offender must complete a substance abuse screening.
If the court or the screening facility determines that the offender has a substance abuse problem, the court may order the offender to obtain counseling, education or treatment.
If the offender has the financial resources to pay all or part of the screening, counseling, education or treatment, then the court shall order him/her to do so.
All programs must be approved by the Department of Health Services.
