DUI Risk Education and Treatment

If you have received a DUI arrest, PEER Services is here to help. We are licensed by the State of Illinois to provide DUI Risk Education classes for adults and teens required to take such classes by the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.  While all individuals with a DUI in Illinois must complete Risk Education, the Secretary of State may require you to participate in additional substance abuse treatment based on results of your DUI Evaluation.

At PEER Services, we can help you meet any treatment requirements. If you live in Illinois, but received a DUI out of state, or if you live in another state and received a DUI in Illinois, please call Bobby, our DUI Program Coordinator, to learn how to complete your court requirements at PEER Services. As a licensed DUI provider, we are able to fulfill these out-of-state requirements.

DUI Evaluation

The first step toward meeting court requirements for a DUI is to obtain a DUI Evaluation.  If your DUI arrest took place in Cook County, the court requires that you obtain an evaluation from Central States Institute: ☎ 847.470.7425. After you complete the evaluation, we can help you meet the court’s and the Secretary of State’s requirements.
