DWI Assessments

Have you recently been charged or convicted of a DWI in North Carolina? The first step in the license restoration process is to obtain a DWI assessment by an agency fully licensed in North Carolina as a DWI service provider. The assessment helps to determine what level of substance use education or treatment you will be required to complete to restore your driving privileges. The assessment which is typically about 1 ½ hours includes a review of the individual’s substance use history, a clinical interview, review of driving record, and completion of a structured assessment questionnaire.

In the state of North Carolina, everyone that is charged with a DWI is required to have a recommendation of either education or Substance Use Treatment.

DWI assessments are completed at our main Charlotte office:

515 Clanton Rd. Charlotte, NC 28217
