Substance Abuse Evaluations and Harris County’s Pretrial Diversion Program

March 23, 2018

If you’ve been asked to take a SALCE evaluation, you may have questions about what to expect.

  • A SALCE evaluation (Substance Abuse and Life Circumstance Evaluation) may be ordered by a judge after an alcohol or drug charge or arrest.
  • Your lawyer may also ask you to have a SALCE evaluation to determine whether you have an alcohol or drug problem.
  • A SALCE evaluation may be required if entering a DWI Pretrial Diversion Program makes sense in your case.

Are you or a loved one having to take a SALCE evaluation?
