In Lancaster County Court a judge may require a complete alcohol evaluation with a certified counselor before sentencing you to probation. An alcohol evaluation involves a session with a counselor who will administer tests and interview you regarding a wide range of personal matters. The counselor will make a recommendation for you to complete a 15-hour alcohol education class, an out-patient treatment program, an intensive outpatient treatment program or a residential care treatment program.
Alcohol evaluations can be completed through the UNL Counseling And Psychological Services (CAPS) available to UNL students. For more information on alcohol evaluations, please visit the CAPS website.
