Synergy of Monticello Inc. provides DWI Assessments for New York State Residents. Who would need a DWI Assessment, a person who is convicted of DWI in New York, may be required to receive a mandatory DWI assessment/evaluation for court-ordered alcohol or drug treatment separate from that of the Drinking Driver Program.
DWI assessments determine the nature and extent of a DWI offender’s alcohol or drug problems. The court involved in a DWI case may order an offender to have an alcohol and substance abuse evaluation pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law § 216.05(1), to determine whether they have a history of and/or current dependence on alcohol or a controlled substance.
DWI Assessments are conducted by certified members of the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). This organization monitors and certifies the substance abuse evaluators and treatment programs in New York State.
