After receiving a Wisconsin DUI, whether a first offense or fifth offense, each Wisconsin DUI offender must take a Wisconsin DUI Alcohol Assessment. A Wisconsin DUI Alcohol Assessment, also known as Alcohol and Other Drugs (A.O.D.A.) Assessments, is a one-on-one meeting between a Wisconsin drunk driver and a counselor to determine drinking habits, family history of drinking, and potential risks of drinking behavior. Assessments for alcohol start out as one-on-ones but they may go to group meetings or in-patient care.
Wisconsin Alcohol Assessment Locations
There are a variety of locations for alcohol assessments in Wisconsin. A Wisconsin AODA Assessment usually occurs in the county of the drunk driving violation; however, some people are able to attend the assessment of alcohol habits in the county in which they live. Some counties have multiple locations to choose from. A Wisconsin DUI Alcohol Assessment varies in price from county to county. However, an AODA Assessment typically costs around $250.00 dollars.
Finding A Wisconsin Alcohol Assessment
Determining the right fit is a personal decision. Sometimes an initial one-on-one meeting provides enough knowledge to determine lifestyle changes. For other people, group settings and sharing of struggles with alcohol use and/or abuse form a path to that change. Others may have a harder struggle, so in-patient alcohol assessments and counseling lends guidance to a lifestyle change.
