What You Need To Know


  • Most counseling agencies perform the screening, although they do not have to be the same company.
  • You will be asked to disclose any information relating to your history with alcohol use and any prior related incidents.
  • Most states require the counseling programs to be certified for DUI penalty.
  • Choose a service approved for treatment for DUIs.
  • Your legal counsel may ask you to voluntarily enroll in a certified rehabilitation program before your scheduled court date. This will provide your attorney with information to help plead your case, which may result in a less serious sentence.
