Evaluations

About Alcohol & Substance Abuse Evaluations (Screenings):

The evaluation is a one-on-one visit with a drug and alcohol counselor that takes about an hour. It  meets the requirements of both the Iowa Code OCI (321J) and the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT). 

If you are evaluated as not needing treatment, we report the results to DOT. If you are evaluated as needing treatment, we refer you to the facility of your choice. We do not offer treatment. In most cases, if you are evaluated as needing treatment, you must complete treatment to get your license back.

To schedule an appointment call: 712.325.3361 or 800.432.5852 ext 3361
The fee for the evaluation is $125.
