What is ADE after a DUI?

In Kentucky, when a person pleads guilty or is convicted of a DUI offense, as well as many drug related offenses, they may be required to submit to an ADE.  ADE is shorthand for Alcohol & Drug Evaluation. This is typically a self reporting evaluation wherein a counselor will ask the defendant how much and how often they use alcohol and drugs. The results of the ADE will be used to evaluate whether the defendant then needs counseling, treatment, out-patient or in-patient treatment.  The treatment plan is based on the necessity of services which may include the length of use, consistency of use and types of drugs being used by the defendant. Following a first offense DUI, the minimal treatment in Kentucky is a 20 hour course.  These courses typically meet for 3 hours, one time each week for 7 consecutive weeks.  There are certain cases where the attorney may advise to enroll and/or complete the ADE and classes prior to appearance in court.  This may be used to minimize a sentence and may help with plea negotiations. The two most commonly used treatment centers which conduct the Alcohol & Drug Evaluations as well as providing the DUI classes classes in Northern Kentucky are:
