What to Expect
All assessments must be conducted in person by an authorized DWI provider. DWI Assessments & Counseling Services is a licensed facility authorized in North Carolina to provide DWI assessments, education and treatment.
A DWI assessment is an initial evaluation of an individual’s use of alcohol and/or other impairing substances. It consists of an online psychological screening and a face-to-face clinical interview. The entire process usually takes 1-1 ½ hours.
The clinician who conducts your assessment will recommend a level of care which can range from education classes to substance use treatment. The level of care recommended depends on many factors including the number of past DWIs, BAC level, psychological testing results, and the diagnosis made by the professional completing your assessment.
