Alcohol​ ​Substance​ ​Abuse​ ​Treatment​ ​Center

If you have received a DUI arrest, Serenity House Counseling Services counselors will work with you to complete your classes as efficiently as possible, while helping identify any concerns that may have led to the arrest. We will also address the problem situation so that you will achieve your goals. We are licensed by the State of Illinois to provide DUI Risk Education classes for adults required to take such 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.

Persons arrested for DUI must undergo an alcohol and drug evaluation (Alcohol and Drug Uniform Report). This will determine the extent of the alcohol and drug use. After the evaluation is completed, a risk classification is determined and followed by recommendations. Prior to the first attendance of any service as listed below, please come 30 minutes early for an intake session: collection of individual information, processing of forms, and review of program guidelines/rules.
