54-A District Court back

Drug and 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 for any case. The assessment includes a written questionnaire and a personal interview with a state certified assessment agent. The $90 assessment fee is due at the time of the interview. There is a $20 "no show" fee for failing to appear for the appointment or failing to reschedule this appointment within 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. 

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 sessions.

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 8:00-9:00 AM.  The cost is $1.00, and must be paid prior to testing.

This presentation is hosted by AA members every Wednesday evening. Participants referred by the court are encouraged to bring a family member or significant other.
