Driver’s license suspended because of a DWI? We are here to help.
Having your driver’s license suspended due to a DWI is a humbling experience. At McLeod Addictive Disease Center, we are here to guide you through the process of getting the necessary substance use treatment. In addition, our clinical team is here to help you navigate the steps towards getting your license reinstated.
The state of North Carolina will require that you complete a mandatory DWI assessment as part of the process to fully reinstate your driver’s license. You will also be required to complete an education program or treatment. McLeod Addictive Disease Center offers a variety of treatment services and education classes that will help you fulfill these requirements. We have clinicians that are trained to conduct your DWI assessment, DWI classes and treatment typically can be started the same week that you complete your assessment.
A DWI Assessment or alcohol assessment is required for everyone who is charged with a Driving While Impaired offense in the state of North Carolina. The DWI Assessment determines the level of classes or treatment you will be required to complete to reinstate your full driving privilege. A DWI Assessment will:
- Allow you to obtain your limited driving privilege
- Demonstrate to the court that you are handling the situation in a responsible manner
- Let you know the exact requirements to obtain your full driving privilege
- Can be used as a mitigating factor and may lessen the judgment against you
As a result of your DWI assessment you may be required to complete either a short-term or a longer-term treatment program. The Short-term DWI program ranges from 20-39 hours that must be completed in a minimum of 30 days. The Longer-term DWI program starts at 40 hours that must be completed in a minimum of 60 days. McLeod Addictive Disease Center classes are held every Tuesday and Wednesday at 9:00am – 11:00am and every Tuesday and Wednesday from 6:00pm-8:00pm.
McLeod Center also offers Residential DWI treatment which can range from 7-14 days in our residential program if recommended. These can be recommended by your clinician, lawyer, and/or the court system. Fee information can be found at the bottom of this page.
