Getting help for alcohol dependence after your DUI

Getting a DUI can be a wake up call for the way you have been living. Perhaps you have been avoiding the realities of your alcohol dependence for too long and have now realized that your behavior has gotten out of control. If this is the case, then the good news is that there is help available for you in the form of education and support.

Getting help for chemical dependency

Addiction is something that many people suffer from in different forms. It is an illness that you should never feel ashamed of, but it is important to come to terms with it so that you can begin on a path to recovery. For an overwhelming number of people, it takes a criminal charge to make them realize that they need help.

When does an ignition interlock device become mandatory?

The first time you're convicted of driving under the influence, you could see between 10 days and 12 months behind bars, anywhere from $300 in fines to $1,000 and a driver's license suspension that lasts for 12 months. You will also need to do community service for at least one standard work week (40 hours) and you'll have to go through a program for drug and/or alcohol use. You may have to go to a substance abuse program, as well, though that is decided by a clinical evaluation.
