DWI Assessment and Treatment
Scheduling a DWI Assessment
Call one of our offices between 8-5, M-F to schedule an assessment:

The assessment will take 60-90 minutes to complete.
The DWI Assessment Process
- The NC State mandated cost for a DWI assessment is $100.
- A counselor will meet with you, in a one-on-one session for an interview which will help the counselor to determine if you have a substance abuse handicap, and if you do, the severity of the problem.
- You will complete a standardized assessment instrument, in this case the SASSI or the ASI-MV, the results of which will assist the counselor in determining the proper level of education or treatment for you.
- A complete NC Driving History must be considered. If you do not have one, we can assist you in acquiring one. The State of NC charges $8 for that form.
- Your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC), or your charge of refusal will be considered.
- Following your assessment, the counselor will discuss his findings and his recommendations with you.
- With a signed consent-to-release, the counselor will provide a written report to your attorney, probation officer, or another.
- A 508 with assessment results and treatment recommendations will be filed with the State of NC. The 508 is the official document required by the NC DMV. When a 508-R Form is submitted on your behalf, it's a statement of confirmation by a NC licensed DWI agency that the program you completed was properly licensed and that it met or exceeded the NC guidelines that govern DWI programs.
