  • Risk Education


    A majority of people who have been arrested for a DUI offense will be required to complete at least 10 hours of DUI Risk Education. These classes provide you with information and education about alcohol, other drugs, and their effects on the brain and body, along with assisting you in coming up with a plan to avoid drinking and driving in the future. Our court and state approved DUI Risk Education program is offered Virtually on Zoom during the week as well as on weekends.


    Substance Abuse Treatment


    Depending on your risk level, you may need treatment hours. We provide treatment for Moderate Risk, Significant Risk, and High Risk levels Virtually on Zoom during the week and on weekends. You will gain insight into your own relationship with alcohol/and or drugs, and learn to become empowered and move forward in a positive manner.


    Continuing Care


    Depending on your risk level, you will be required to attend Continuing Care once your treatment is complete. The goal of Continuing Care is for the client to maintain the positive changes he or she has implemented in order to prevent future alcohol/drug-related incidents.


    Secretary of State Evaluations/Updates


    We provide DUI / alcohol / drug evaluation updates for the Secretary of State. You may need an updated evaluation and other reports necessary to begin the re-instatement or restricted driver's license process if your driver's license has been revoked due to multiple DUIs, an out-of-state DUI, or if you have had a Secretary of State Hearing Denial.
