                  A little straight talk about DUI
If you are charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in Illinois, one of the things you most likely will have to do is get an Alcohol and Drug Evaluation.  If your DUI occurred in DuPage County Illinois, you will need to get your evaluation through the DuPage County DUI Evaluation Service.  You will need to make an appointment for this service, and you will be required to pay a fee.  

You may call DuPage County at 630-407-8384 for information. 

Once the evaluation is completed, you will be assigned a driving risk level. Depending on your driving risk level, you will need to complete certain educational and/or treatment related services.   DuPage County DUI Evaluation Service can supply you with a list of providers who are approved by DuPage County to offer you the required educational and treatment services.  (We are one of the providers on that list.)  

Often the courts will allow you one year to complete all of your requirements.  

Minimal Risk:  If your driving risk level is classified as Minimal Risk, you will be required, at a minimum, to complete 10 hours of Risk Education.  Different providers have different schedules and fees for this service.  Once you start the class, you cannot miss any sessions of the Risk Education Class.  All providers must follow this rule.  It is one of the state’s rules for this service.  You should allow up to a month to complete your Risk Education Class. Plan Ahead!

Moderate Risk:  If your driving risk level is classified as Moderate Risk, you will be required, at a minimum, to complete a 10 hour Risk Education Class and 12 hours of Early Intervention.  Different providers have different schedules and fees for these services.  Once you start the Risk Education class, you cannot miss any sessions of the Risk Education Class.  All providers must follow this rule.  It is one of the state’s rules for this service.  

The Early Intervention Program is usually done in classes no larger than 24 students.  The primary focus of the Early Intervention program is education.  It could take two and a half to three months to complete these services.  Really plan Ahead!!

Significant Risk:  If your driving risk level is classified as Significant Risk, you will be required, at a minimum to complete a 10 hour Risk Education Class and 20 hours of treatment.  If your DUI occurred in DuPage County, you will also have to complete 12 hours of Continuing Care after you have completed the 20 hours of treatment.  Other counties have different requirements.  Once you start the Risk Education class, you cannot miss any sessions of the Risk Education Class.  All providers must follow this rule. It is one of the state’s rules for this service.   

Treatment is usually provided in small groups of 10 to 16 members. Treatment helps you develop life long strategies to help you manage the risks of alcohol use.  It can take between eight and ten months to complete all the services.  Really really plan Ahead!!!
