Clinical Evaluations

There are many instances when someone will need a clinical evaluation. The court, a probation officer, or other government entities may determine a clinical evaluation is needed after a drug and/or alcohol conviction.

Any DUI conviction in Georgia, or a licensed Georgia driver who catches a DUI charge in another state must undergo a clinical evaluation. Subsequently, a person may be required to complete a substance abuse treatment program if the clinical evaluator deems it necessary.

Locating An Approved Evaluator

The evaluation is an assessment conducted by an approved licensed professional who is certified in the field of addiction. You must select a clinical evaluator from the Department of Behavioral Health's list of approved evaluators (when utilizing the Evaluator Registry Search, make sure you choose "Clinical Evaluators" as the Group).

Out of State Evaluations

The Georgia Department of Drivers Services will not accept out of state Certificates of Treatment Completion of a clinical evaluation unless the program is approved by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

If you have completed an out-of-state evaluation and would like to receive credit for attendance, fax the Certificate of Treatment Completion to 404-657-6417 for approval.

Assessment Release Fee

Often times a clinical evaluator wants to review the NEEDS Assessment results of a particular student. If you are required to have your results sent somewhere, complete the Authorization For Assessment Release(PDF) and return it to our office. The form can be emailed, delivered personally or via the US Postal Service to:
ABS DUI School
2762 Joe Jerkins Blvd
Austell, GA 30106

The fee for transferring or releasing Assessment results is $25.
