Substance Abuse Assessment
If you have a DWI you will need to obtain a substance abuse assessment. Lifeskills will be able to schedule your assessment and treatment at a time that is convenient for you.

​The assessment consists of a standardized test and a face-to-face clinical interview with a substance abuse counselor. When the assessment is completed, you will be given an intervention recommendation for education and/or treatment related to your DWI and substance abuse history.

  • you must have submitted to the breathalyzer & your blood/alcohol level must have been less than .15, and
  • based on your assessment, your counselor must find that you do not meet the criteria for substance abuse or dependence.
Short-Term Outpatient Treatment
If you do not meet the requirements for ADETS and your assessment did not indicate a drinking or substance abuse problem, short-tem counseling consisting of at least 20 hours will be recommended.
​Long-Term Outpatient Treatment
A minimum of 40 hours is recommended for individuals who meet the diagnostic criteria for chemical dependence.
