Wilmington Area DWI Assessment Information
What is a DWI Assessment?
Why is a DWI Assessment needed?
If a person is convicted of a DWI in North Carolina, it is required that they complete a DWI Assessment to obtain a paper license.
For those that want to gain a Limited Driving Privilege during the Civil Revocation period, a DWI Assessment is required.
A DWI Assessment can also possibly lessen punishment at trial because it is considered a mitigating factor.
Bottom line, if a person has been charged with a DWI in North Carolina, it’s very beneficial for them to obtain an assessment as soon as possible.
What kind of treatment will the DWI Assessment facility suggest?
There is a spectrum of services that a Substance Abuse Counselor can suggest. These include:
Alcohol Drug Education Traffic School (also known as ADETS)
The NCSHHS defines ADETS as an educational program for people who do not have identified substance abuse disorder, but may be at risk.
Outpatient treatment does not require an overnight stay at a facility. This type of treatment can consist of short-term or long-term depending on the severity of the addiction or abuse.
Inpatient treatment involves checking into a facility and having 24 hour care.
Day treatment involves going to a facility for at least 8 hours a day.
How long will the DWI Assessment take?
Multiple facilities in the New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick County area mention on their website that the process will take roughly 90 minutes, but the session is not a timed event.
