Kentucky DUI Assessment & Education Program Overview
All first time DUI offenders are required to complete an assessment by a state certified provider and to attend and successfully complete a 20-hour DUI education program. If the counselor determines that more then the standard 20-hour of education is needed, they can recommend up to a maximum of 90 days of treatment if needed.
For a second offense DUI Kentucky requires that the offender complete an assessment and a 1-year long treatment program. The state law has a provision that allows for early release from the 1-year of treatment if the counselor determines that all of the plan goals have been met and at least 6 months of scheduled treatment have been provided.
For all 3rd or subsequent offenses, the offender must complete the 1-year of treatment with no early release from treatment allowed.
The DUI education will be based upon the state assessment questionnaire that the counselor used during the assessment process along with any recommendation's the counselor suggested. The education period can be anywhere from 20-hours to 1-year based on the assessment. The topics to be covered during the education program included:
- Looking at the offender's lifestyle
- Alcohol and its effects
- Long term effects of alcohol abuse
- Learning the patterns of alcohol abuse
- Drug abuse and dependency
- Risk factors for addiction
- Driving under the influence
- The decision making process
- Making a change in your life and the benefits of change
The costs for the assessment and the education program are typically around $250 for the 20-hour program and up to $2,500 for the 1-year treatment program.
