Per Idaho Code section 18-8005 (11), an evaluation must be completed by, “a substance use disorders service provider approved by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.”
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Division of Behavioral Health, considers any substance use disorders services provider to be approved to perform alcohol evaluations provided they meet the following criteria:
- They are working within the scope of their license/credentials.
- They hold a license/credential listed under Qualified Substance Use Disorders Professional in IDAPA 16.07.17.200.

Specific requirements related to DUI evaluations are managed by the district courts. Local courts may have agencies they prefer to work with; it is the responsibility of the person seeking an evaluation to communicate with the district court to select a DUI evaluator that is approved by the court. District courts will also be the contact for any DUI or DUI evaluation questions.
