Drug & Alcohol Information

Any person convicted of a drinking and driving offense in Michigan must complete an alcohol/drug screening or assessment prior to sentence. Assessments can also be ordered by the judge in any case. The assessment consists of a written questionnaire and a personal interview with a certified assessment agent. A $90 assessment fee will be due at the time of the interview, and a $20 "no show" fee if you miss your appointment.  If you need to reschedule, you must call at least 24 hours before your appointment or pay the $20 fee. 

Failure to complete a court-ordered assessment may result in being remanded to jail for contempt of court.

Drug & Alcohol Testing

There is a fee for all drug and alcohol testing. This testing is often ordered to be conducted at the agency where a probationer is attending counseling.

Failure to show for a scheduled test, failure to pay for the test at testing time, a positive test result, or altering, tampering or diluting a urine sample may all result in a violation.


The Probation Department conducts PBTs every weekday (except holidays) from 8-9 AM. The cost is $1, and must be paid prior to testing.
