DUI TREATMENT ASAM LEVEL I
You’ve been recommended counseling ASAM Level I. What’s next?
In some cases, there is not a recommendation for education or Treatment. For others, there may be a recommendation for 6-12 weeks of Treatment, 4-12 months of Treatment, or something more intensive. This will all be determined by the individual’s current level of risk to self and/or the community. If you are recommended Treatment, then yes it is now a requirement that must be met to satisfy your involvement with the Criminal Justice System. It would be in your best interest to start Treatment as soon as possible to alleviate any additional stress or prolong any court-mandated supervision like probation.
