Make Better Choices

People convicted of a NC DWI are required by the State of NC to get an assessment and complete the substance abuse treatment or education program recommendations in order to get their license reinstated. The person can select a treatment center or their attorney can recommend one.  At First Step, most of the programs are covered under health insurance. The cost of the assessment is set by the State at $100 at all DWI providers in NC.

Our Goal: No more problems from use of alcohol or drugs

“We want attorneys to know that we genuinely care about these people; we’re not just running a mill. Attorneys are working with their clients to help them in the best way possible. We share that commitment.” (First Step Services, LLC counselor comment)

The state of North Carolina has created a series of programs with specific guidelines to meet the requirements set by the court and that are offered at treatment centers like First Step Services.

First time offenders are often enrolled in First Step’s ADETS/Prime for Life program, which runs for 16 hours spread out for five days. “We’re not telling people to stop drinking, that’s a choice. But we’re hoping that they do get the message from the class to make better choices.” “ADETS aims to help people learn to reduce their risks of alcohol and drug related problems throughout life, and improve their overall wellness.” (First Step Services, LLC counselor comment)

Since telehealth is a remote healthcare option, it does not pose the same risks as an in person visit.
