If you are facing DWI charges, you may have the option of entering DWI court rather than traditional court. DWI court is a program intended for repeat offenders and offenders struggling with chemical dependency. It is designed to combat addiction and provide long-term solutions that are more effective at breaking habits than traditional penalties are.

You cannot be forced into DWI court. It is your decision whether or not you want to enter the program.

DWI court is best for individuals looking to change their habits and work to be free from addiction. It is an intensive program that takes dedication. If you are not looking for a change in your life or you are only considering it to avoid traditional court, DWI court is probably not the best plan for you. An attorney can work with you to find the best option and defend your interests.

It has worked successfully for many participants so, if you struggle with chemical dependency and want help overcoming it, DWI court may be a great option for you.
