Substance Abuse Evaluation

Michigan Driver’s License Restoration Attorney

When your driver’s license is suspended or revoked in Michigan due to any charge or incident involving drugs or alcohol, the process of having it restored can become considerably more complicated. In particular, a substance abuse evaluation will be required of you. The purpose of this test is to gauge whether or not you will likely repeat the offense that led to your license suspension in the first place.

At White Law PLLC, our Michigan driver’s license lawyers understand what the evaluation process entails and what the Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles will expect of you. Allow us to represent you during this intricate process so you can maximize your chances of getting your freedom of mobility back.

Call (517) 316-1195 today to learn more about our services.

What to Include on Evaluation Forms

Recidivism, or a person’s likelihood of committing one crime multiple times throughout their lives, is a major area of concern in Michigan. Recent statistics of driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol charges on the rise has not helped loosen the state’s policies. As a result, mandatory substance abuse evaluation forms have become more prevalent and more detailed.

Some of the information required on a substance abuse evaluation form includes:

  • Any reported history of treatments or relapse
  • Complete criminal record of substance-related crimes
  • Attendance to substance abuse support groups
  • Diagnosis from doctors or psychologists
  • Evaluator test results or prognoses
  • Future support requirements
  • Day-to-day living arrangements that may promote substance abuse
  • Drugs prescribed for medical treatments

Getting References & Professional Support

Beyond just submitting the substance abuse evaluation form with the basic requirements, you should also consider what else you can add to it to strengthen your reputation. Our Michigan driver’s license restoration lawyers can help you work with the professionals in your life to obtain beneficial letters of recommendation and acclaim. The more you can collect, the more likely your DAAD/DLAD hearings will proceed in your favor.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense

    “People v. D.B. (2016) - "When we got the news that our grandson was facing very serious charges, we were devastated. We didn’t know any criminal defense attorneys and didn’t know who to turn to. After speaking to a few people, three of them recommend attorney James White. Mr. White was able to meet with us right away, which was a relief because we had so many questions. The whole ordeal of what our grandson was being charged with was very stressful on us, both emotionally and financially. Mr. White was kind and understanding. He kept us informed and was available throughout the case for any questions or concerns we had. Mr. White fought hard to achieve the best possible outcome for our grandson, and in the end his efforts and determination brought our grandson the best results we could have hoped for. What stood out to us is how down to earth Mr. White is. He handles himself in a professional and respectful manner and will work hard to get the results his client needs. I’d also like to thank the support staff of White Law PLLC who were kind, polite, and helpful whenever we called. I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense." ”

  • This law firm does an outstanding job keeping those values and did an amazing job on my case.

    “Let me start by saying that compassion, dignity, and respect, hold the most value for me.

This law firm does an outstanding job keeping those values and did an amazing job on my case. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for representing us and I will highly recommend this law office to everyone I know!”

  • I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges.

    “When my trial began, everyone that I saw would look at me funny, like I was a bad person. By the time the witnesses had finished testifying at trial, everyone was using those bad looks for my accusers. I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges.””

  • If it wasn't for Mr. White I would have been unjustly put in jail for a very long time.

    “People v. R.R. (2013) - "I was facing a serious criminal charge that I did not commit. I spoke with several other attorneys and all of them had a laid back attitude. I didn't need an attorney with a laid back attitude, I needed an attorney that would aggressively pursue my case and one that knows the law. I got referred to Jamie White of the White Law PLLC and I got exactly what I needed, an aggressive knowledgeable attorney. From our initial conversation to the day I was exonerated, Mr. White worked hard to prove my innocence. If it wasn't for Mr. White I would have been unjustly put in jail for a very long time. Thank you Mr. White." ”
