Getting a DUI in New Jersey can impact your life significantly, potentially disrupting your career and even affecting your personal relationships. Fortunately, a variety of resources can facilitate course correction and help you get your life back on track.
One resource you may draw upon is the Driving Under the Influence Initiative, also known as the DUII program. Assessing your eligibility can help you determine if you would be a good candidate.
Factors that could impact the outcome of your DUI charge, as well as your eligibility for a DUII program, may include the following:
- The number of DUI’s you have on your record
- Any other outstanding warrants
- The seriousness of your DUI offense
- Additional court recommendations for your case
The DUII program recognizes that you have the potential to overcome the weaknesses that may have influenced your decision to drive while impaired. According to the State of New Jersey, Department of Human Services, you will first need to undergo a clinical assessment to identify the extent of your need for substance abuse treatment. If you meet the financial requirements, you can participate in courses designed to treat addictions and reduce your risks of recidivism.
A DUII program addresses all angles of substance abuse and intoxication. You may learn about how alcohol consumption impairs your ability to focus, reason and respond. Suggestions for recognizing, managing and preventing triggers can help you build and strengthen healthier habits.
Drawing upon the resources available so you can make a substantial difference in your effort to recover. A DUI does not have to remove control from your life. Despite this setback, you can take responsibility for your actions and continue to live a happy and successful life.
