You were cited for drinking and driving. Now you have to face the facts and the law. As anyone who has gone through it can tell you, a DUI conviction is a long and expensive process, but SummitStone Health Partners is here to help. We are an affordable, reliable, licensed resource for DUI Services and we offer walk-in, same-day access so you don’t have to wait to get started.
After you get out of jail, your probation officer will assign you a track of treatment based on your Blood Alcohol Level (BAC), prior convictions and possibly any other clinical indications. You will most likely be court-ordered to enter DUI Education and Therapy. You may also be assigned to Alternative Sentencing, where you don’t have to stay in jail, but you do have to report to the jail for community service work, usually two days a week.
DUI Level II Education consists of 24 hours of DUI classes over 12 weeks. It is usually in a group setting with about 12 people. If Therapy is assigned, it can range in length from five to 10 months depending on the treatment level you are assigned by your probation officer. Therapy usually begins after the Education program is completed. Then you will be required to attend two-hours of treatment a week for a minimum of 42 hours over five months all the way up to 86 hours over 10 months. SummitStone counselors can also identify underlying issues that contributed to your legal situation and work to develop a treatment plan with you.
If you find yourself in the position of needing to take court-ordered DUI Education Level II and Therapy, call SummitStone at (970) 494-4200 or walk-in to our Bristlecone or Wilson offices Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Tuesdays-Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for same-day access. Education classes cost $25 each, but the initial assessment and therapy sessions are free for clients on Medicaid.
