Florida DUI Evaluation Services
For many individuals, a DUI conviction can indicate a deeper substance abuse problem. In the state of Florida, a first offense leads to mandated penalties that include a minimum $500 fine, community service, probation and possibly vehicle impoundment.
Subsequent convictions can lead to higher fines and mandated residential substance abuse treatment, which may or may not offset jail time. A DUI evaluation can assure that the struggling individual is living a clean and sober lifestyle, or results may indicate that further intervention is necessary. JourneyPure Emerald Coast offers a wide range of testing options that prove or verify potential substance abuse.
Our DUI evaluations:
- Determine the extent, circumstances and history surrounding alcohol and drug abuse. Most people are familiar with the breathalyzer test, which converts ethanol in the breath to an estimate of blood alcohol concentration. The breathalyzer is a proven estimator of impairment, but it is not the only way to test for abuse. Law enforcement officers can arrest a suspect for DUI with a simple impairment test or a positive breathalyzer result. In addition, the breathalyzer tests positive only as long as ethanol remains on the breath.
Journey Pure Emerald Coast offers in-depth DUI evaluation services that go beyond BAC. We offer urine screening for drug and alcohol abuse, blood testing and hair follicle testing that can reveal substance abuse history going back as far as 3 months. We also offer support and confirmation services that verify and clarify results performed by another individual or lab.
- Determine classification level and education while proving intervention/treatment recommendations according to current standards or court rules. In addition to lab services, JourneyPure Emerald Coast can assess an individual for treatment progress, verify that the client is meeting recovery goals and is following the rules established by the court. If it is determined that the individual is not meeting recovery goals, JourneyPure Emerald Coast will make recommendations for change.
Employee Assistance Programs
If you or your business requires a DUI evaluation for an employee with a history of substance abuse and you have access to an employee assistance program, we can help. EAPs are proven to promote a healthier and more satisfying work environment. JourneyPure Emerald Coast can provide services such as random or ongoing drug and alcohol testing, substance abuse education, outpatient counseling and residential treatment. We also offer access to medically assisted detox, dual diagnosis assessment and treatment, peer-led support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, family therapy and other holistically focused programs.
JourneyPure Emerald Coast can educate your employees on the signs of symptoms of substance abuse, mental health disorders and trauma-related challenges. The questions we can answer for your employees include:
- How can I tell the difference between substance abuse and addiction?
- How much alcohol is safe to drink?
- What does “binge drinking” mean?
- What are the penalties for DUI in Florida?
- How will DUI affect my employment status?
- Is it safe to smoke marijuana?
- How dangerous are painkillers?
- What are the physical and emotional symptoms of addiction?
- Where can I get help?
Comprehensive Assessment Services at JourneyPure Emerald Coast
For simple legal and employer ordered evaluations, JourneyPure Emerald Coast uses the same methods as we do for client assessments and evaluations: comprehensive interview, criteria from the DSM & ASAM, and the three severity factors.
They are fairly brief and straightforward. They rely primarily on client self-report, but also take into consideration information provided by the referral source, and any accompanying paperwork from courts or employer.
DUI evaluation requests sometimes also include other services, such as urine drug screens (UDS), basic drug & alcohol education and documentation. The cost of these assessments/evaluations vary with the types and number of services requested. Simple 12-panel urine screens that test for the most common types of drugs are the most cost effective. Hair follicle screening is the most expensive. Please note that certain drugs, such as bath salts and synthetic marijuana, may not test positive in any drug test. These drugs often contain psychoactive ingredients not yet identified by law enforcement and medical professionals, and therefore, are not illegal. In these cases, other evidence of impairment must be submitted.
Clients are given a thorough DUI evaluation through comprehensive interview and provided a signed letter containing our findings and recommendations.
