FAQs

1. Do you accept insurance for treatment programs?

No. However, we have the cheapest rates in our area. Our class fees are all inclusive, we do not charge for incidentals like drug screens (as long as you pass), certificates, blood work(not needed), or extra time with your group counselor 1 on 1, if needed.
Compare our totals with other programs and you will see that we are consistently cheaper in all our treatment programs without sacrificing quality.

5. Does having a Clinical Evaluation/Court Assessment mean that I’m going to have to attend classes?

Not always. The purpose of a Clinical Evaluation/Court Assessment is to determine IF you need treatment and if so, what level of treatment is appropriate. There are several possible outcomes to a Clinical Evaluation/Court Assessment:

No Treatment (NEEDS MET)
People who don’t meet the DSM-V criteria for a substance use disorder OR people who have been to treatment, counseling, or education since their last charge and the evaluator believes that no further treatment is needed.

Risk Reduction Program (DUI School)
Education program mandated to those people that have received a drug or alcohol charge. The State of Georgia mandates the curriculum “PRIME for Life” for all DUI Schools state-wide. PRIME For Life focuses on information that is needed to bring about behavior change. It helps participants focus on critical conclusions obtained from hearing the information presented: Who can experience alcohol or drug problems? How do I estimate biological risk? How do I know what low risk is and how far have my alcohol and drug choices progressed?

Level 1 Short Term (6-12Weeks min of 18 hours)

Level 1 Long Term (4-12 Months)

*Long Term Intensive Outpatient Program (52 Weeks)
program designed for people on probation as an alternative to residential treatment.

Level 2 – Partial Hospitalization/Outpatient (Day Programs)
Programs that have the capacity to arrange for medical and psychiatric consultation, psychopharmacological consultation, medication management, and 24-hour crisis services.

6. How do classes for Probation differ from classes to get my license back(DDS)?

  1. If you are a First Offender, Multiple Offender, or Habitual Violator.
    • DDS looks at a five(5) year period between arrests to determine if you are a First Offender, Multiple Offender, or Habitual Violator. (OCGA 40-6-391)
    • Courts look at a ten(10) year period between arrests.
  2. Order of requirements
    • DDS rules state that you must do DUI School, Clinical Evaluation, Treatment, Interlock Device; in this order.
    • Courts usually want you to have a Clinical Evaluation and begin treatment ASAP.
  3. Time Frames
    • DDS doesn’t have a time frame for you to complete the requirements for license renewal, but they won’t reinstate your license until all requirements are satisfied.
    • Courts usually restrict the time to enroll in DUI School, Clinical Evaluation, Treatment, etc. If you don’t start/complete the requirements in the given time you may go back to jail.
