Thank you for the clarification.

Assuming that this is your first offense, the penalties are as follows:
* 48 hours to 11 months, 29 days in jail (unless your test was .20 or higher--then it is a minimum of 7 days in jail)
* DUI school
* 1 year license revocation
* $350-$1500 fine, plus any restitution (if any) coming out of the accident
* Ignition interlock on your vehicle (this is not mandatory but a judge may order it)
* Alcohol treatment (again, not mandatory but the judge may order it)

If they took blood from you, then they should be able to test it for the presence of drugs. However, it may depend on what they are screening for. If they are only screening for alcohol and perhaps recreational drugs, then it may not turn up other drugs. It is a good idea to get a lawyer for your case anyway to try to either work out the best deal possible or to try the case for you if you don't want to accept a plea. If you can't afford to hire a lawyer you can apply for the public defender. Your lawyer can follow up with the lab that is handling the blood test to ensure that they test for the presence of other drugs like rohypnol and the like that are of the type used to drug people.
