Online DUI Classes Approved in Illinois

Online DUI Classes Allows Convenient Alternative

In a DUI case, an offender must complete an alcohol evaluation and complete a treatment recommendation as part of the terms of a DUI sentence. The evaluation is used to determine what level of alcohol treatment is needed to address the offense. 

In Cook County, these evaluations are completed by the Central State’s Institute of Addiction, commonly called CSI. Central State’s is located in each of the suburban courthouses as well as 69 W. Washington, in downtown.

CSI will return an evaluation with the possible levels of
* Minimum
* Moderate
* Significant
* High

While all alcohol evaluations are completed by CSI, a person usually has more control in choosing their provider.

Recently, a client had completed an evaluation where his recommendation had been minimum level treatment. Minimum treatment is typically reserved for a first time offender with a blood alcohol content between 0.08 and 0.16.

Due to his non-traditional work hours, he began searching for accommodating providers. Not surprisingly, he found a non-traditional provider.

www.DUIclassonline.com is operated by Intervention Instruction, Inc., a longtime treatment provider and non-profit corporation. (Disclaimer: this office has NO affiliation with Intervention Instruction, Inc.)

Their site has an easy-to-navigate setup that has instructions on fees, program overview, registration, and an FAQ.
