DUI SAFETY TREATMENT PROGRAM
If you received a DUI in the state of West Virginia, you will need to complete a substance abuse evaluation and follow any treatment recommendations as stipulated by the evaluator. In some cases additional penalties/requirements may be imposed by the court system, the Department of Motor Vehicles, and/or Department of Health and Human Resources.
If you have more than one DUI offense you are considered a multiple/habitual offender in the State of West Virginia, and are advised to seek assessment and admission to a structured, clinically based, substance abuse treatment program designed for multiple/habitual DUI offenders. The intensity of services shall be based upon a clinical assessment completed at the time of program admission by a substance abuse professional using American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Patient Placement Criteria.
Westbrook Health Services offers a DUI Safety & Treatment Program that meets the requirements set forth by the state of West Virginia in order for individuals to once again obtain their driver’s license.

Additionally, individuals need to obtain a Driver’s Record from the DMV to bring to orientation. Orientation and an individual assessment must be completed before you are able to start the class. Depending on the level of care in which the evaluator determines is needed during the individual assessment, additional services may be required and additional costs may be incurred.
