Under this new law, the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) is responsible for approving clinical evaluators and
treatment providers and establishing regulations for implementing these requirements

Reasons to take a defensive driving class:
- Point Reduction
- Court ordered classes
- Driver's License Reinstatement

A Defensive Driving Course may keep a ticket off your record! Georgia Law allows you to take a defensive driving course, and with Court approval you can possibly have tickets dismissed.
Nearly every auto insurance company offers discounts for drivers that take a defensive driving course in the state of Georgia.
Discounts are sometimes up to a 15% discount for 3 consecutive years after taking the course. To find out how much you can save, contact your auto insurance provider.

- The clinical evaluation consists of a clinical interview, a review of your NEEDS Assessment results from the DUI school, and any other assessment instruments deemed appropriate by the evaluator to complete a thorough evaluation. Only an approved evaluator from the DBH/DD Registry of Clinical Evaluators can complete your clinical evaluation.
- You will be given a Clinical Evaluation Agreement / Contract that informs you of the services you are entitled to as part of the evaluation process.
- If no treatment is recommended, the evaluator will send a form to DBHDD to request a Requirements Met Certificate that will be mailed to you.
- If the evaluation results in a treatment recommendation, the clinical evaluator must show you a list of approved providers (DBHDD Registry of Treatment Providers).
- The evaluator will recommend a level of care.
- The evaluator cannot tell you to go to a specific treatment provider, you decide that.
- The evaluator cannot determine the exact number of weeks you have to attend treatment.
- If the evaluator determines there is no need for treatment, the evaluator will submit a case presentation to DBH/DD for review.
- If approved, DBHDD will provide the client with a “Requirements Met” form, which can be submitted to your Probation Officer.
Weekly Level 1 Treatment Classes
- You must choose a treatment provider from the DBHDD Registry of Treatment Providers who is permitted to deliver the ASAM level of care recommended by the clinical evaluator. NOTE: As part of a court order, only a judge can tell you to go to a particular treatment program.
- ASAM Level I – Short Term Program is 6-12 weeks, 18 hours minimum.
- ASAM Level I long-term program is three to nine hours of treatment services per week. The length of treatment is 4 to 12 months. A treatment review occurs when 4 months has been completed. A decision will then be made for you to continue with more counseling or that you have completed the treatment program.
- You will be given a Treatment Agreement / Contract that informs you all requirements for successful completion of the program.
- It is the responsibility of the treatment provider to determine the length of treatment and the number of hours you must attend. You may be expected to attend more than the minimum number of hours and weeks of treatment.
- The treatment program may have additional requirements to be met before you are considered as having completed treatment. Each individual treatment provider or agency determines additional services.
- Finally, you must have satisfied all fees to the treatment provider in order to receive your “Treatment Completion” form, which can be submitted to your probation officer.
