MDH Behavioral Health Services Licensed to Provide DUI Evaluations

1/25/2012

Macomb, IL–- McDonough District Hospital’s Behavioral Health Services was recently licensed by the Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse to provide DUI evaluations.

People charged with DUI, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, must complete an evaluation from a state-licensed program as a requirement to maintain a license to drive. The MDH department will also provide Risk Education which is the minimum care someone convicted of DUI needs to complete.

“State licensing enables our department to offer these services and expand our offerings to the community,” said Behavioral Health Services Director Kay Lee, MSEd, LCPC.

The license will be up for renewal in November 2014. Other area providers of DUI services are Bridgeway and Hopewell Clinic (one day per week)

MDH staff providing the service will be Jen Smith, MSW, LSW, CADC and Amy Hofmeister MSEd, LCPC, CADC

For program information contact MDH Behavioral Health Services at 309-836-1582, located in the lower level of Health Services Building One on the MDH campus in Macomb.
