DUI Driving School is meant for participants to learn more about their offense so that towards the end of the course they will be able to take full responsibility for it. Mandatory alcohol education, assessment and Counseling laws require attendance at DUI Driving School to help with alcohol education or therapy. Acknowledging that it was their alcohol and/or drug use that resulted in the consequences of a DUI offense. The DUI Driving School is a dedicated program that will help participants commit to ending the abuse of alcohol and drugs. Helping them develop a plan for the future to avoid continuing their disruptive behavior including how to avoid relapses with better and healthier choices. Normally after completion of all the courses in the DUI Driving School, a follow-up interview is conducted to assess the level of completion for goals and to reinforce strategies to avoid drinking and driving. Alcohol prevention programs can often replace and reduce harsher penalties in drunk driving cases such as court fines, license suspension, and jail time.
Driving Under the Influence is against the law and can result in serious consequences
Drinking and driving is extremely dangerous. Not only are you putting your life at risk but others as well. We all tend to make mistakes that we later find ourselves regretting in the long run. Drinking and driving is one of those mistakes that we underestimate and repeat often. I’m sure many of us have experienced making decisions without taking a moment to consider the consequences of our actions. Pairing your decision-making skills with alcohol is just asking for a disaster.
Excessive consumption of alcohol not only misconstrues your decision-making ability but it can affect your personality, too. Drinking too much alcohol not only opens the door to irrational choices that could possibly lead to poor decision-making after a night of drinking and getting behind the wheel. We highly recommend that you ask yourself when it will ever be enough? When is it time for me to make a change? Ask yourself, will you learn from your consequences? Will you actively assess your behavior? Will you begin the process of making sound and safe choices? Or will you continue the vicious cycle and start to lose your grip on life and become comfortable in your mistakes?
We are here to help you with those questions. We’re not here to judge your DUI we’re here to give you the information you need to open the door of sobriety. The first step to that open door is being interviewed by one of our certified Counseling providers. This interview is known as a DUI evaluation. A DUI evaluation is ordered by the court when a person is arrested for a DUI. This interview is used to determine the presence and extent of a possible alcohol problem. The evaluation also helps with the development of a Counseling plan to help assist you better with your recover.
Counseling is an option
Substance abuse almost seems to be as old as mankind. Although substance abuse often begins with pleasure-seeking, self-medication, exploration, or other reasons, its dependency often creeps up without alarming. Legal for use with certain stipulations, alcohol is one of the major addictive illicit drugs; second, only to cigarette smoking. Driving under the influence is also one of the leading causes of death, worldwide. While access to illicit substances is not so easy, alcohol is a socially acceptable and a legal drug; however, the problem of alcohol and drug abuse is huge, receiving Counseling is difficult.
Some of the reasons hindering Counseling were lack of facilities, poor access, lack of trained professionals, cost of Counseling, and more. Even incarceration and recidivism have strong links to substance abuse. In the past alternative, Counseling was not usually offered to those facing legal charges. However, now certain alternatives to incarceration programs are offered in many cases since they have been known as helpful in lowering the rate of recidivism; and, effective in substance abuse Counseling. Due to their effectiveness, certain groups or individual therapy classes are also a part of some probation and correctional pretrial services.
