DCN Specializes in providing Outpatient Substance Abuse Counseling to DUI offenders. If you require drug or alcohol counseling to maintain or get your driver’s license back in Florida or in any other state, or you’re on probation for a drug-related charge, keep reading. A   word   of   Wisdom…   Most   people   come   to   us   angry   and   confused,   feeling   we’re   here   to   punish   them   further, that   it   is   all   about   money,   they   arrive   belligerent   and   disrespecting   us;   asking   why   do   they   have   to   do   this bullshit!!… You   may   already   have   done   the   DUI   School   at   the   Safety   Council,   and   that   is   a   strict   requirement   set   by   law. However,   during   your   Evaluation   at   the   Safety   Council,   under   the   guidelines   of   the   State   of   Florida,   and   under strict   rules   and   parameters,   it   was   determined   that   you   needed   to   be   referred   to   a   Licensed   Clinical   Substance Abuse   Counseling   provider   in   order   to   receive   clinical   treatment.   It   was   not   a   subjective   decision   the   Safety Council made, they just didn’t explain you the whole thing; and they don’t have to do so. We   objectively   try   to   determine   how   much   counseling   you   may   need   to   satisfy   the   Court,   DMV,   etc.,   but   most importantly,   to   keep   you   from   getting   ANOTHER   COSTLY   DUI…   All   that   for   you   to   meet   the   requirements   to   get your   full   driving   privilege   restore.   So,   you   know   it   has   been   costly,   it   will   be   a   bit   more   money   and   time…   But we’ll get you a lot closer to FREEDOM! CLASSES:  We have 9 sites in North Central and North East Florida. We offer from 2-hour/weekly classes, 4-hour bi-weekly classes, 6-hour monthly classes, to 12-hour intensive weekend classes. See the Sites and Schedules chart. You may attend any combination of these options, and attend any site in order to accommodate your work, financial, and timeline requirements. But once you start, DON’T STOP. Get it done! SCHEDULING AN INTAKE In   order   to   sign   up   with   us,   you   need   to   schedule   an   intake,   which   may   take   about   one   hour from   the   time   you   sit   with   the   screener/evaluator.   The   intake   is   to   gather   clinical   and   bio- social   information   that   is   necessary   to   determine   the   number   of   hours   that   you   will   be required to attend to successfully satisfy the Safety Council and the DMV. 1 . To   schedule   an   intake,   please   select   from   our   Sites   and   Schedules    chart   the   location most   convenient   for   you   to   come   for   an   intake.   Later,   for   the   classes,   you   may   attend any or all the other sites after you have enrolled. 2 . Then   give   us   a   call   between   10   am   and   4   pm,   Monday   thru   Thursday   (Sorry,   we’re catching up on Fridays). 3 . We   will   ask   you   for   substantial   information   so   that   we   can   mail   you   the   required   forms you   need   to   fill   out   and   bring   with   you   to   the   Intake.   Please   be   prepared   to   provide   us accurate information. We can always call you back if you’re pressed for time. 4 . The   Evaluation/Intake   will   result   in   a   Clinical   Diagnosis   and   a   set   of   reports   that   are required   to   be   submitted   to   the   Safety   Council.   The   evaluation   will   also   determine   how many    hours    of    Counseling    you    are    required    to    attend.    The    number    of    hours    are determined   by   a   set   of   criteria   that,   among   many   parameters,   take   into   account   the circumstances   of   the   offenses   that   brought   you   to   this   point,   arrest   reports,   the accuracy   and   truthfulness   of   your   information,   etc.   DO   NOT   EXPECT   to   be   told   that you   do   not   need   any   classes,   but   for   a   small   fee,   we   can   give   you   the   names   of   the providers    that    will    sell    you    a    Certificate    of    Completion    for    about    $300    without attending any classes or doing any urine tests. (joking…?) COST OF INTAKE: While   other   providers   charge   from   $30   to   $170   just   for   the   intake,   we provide    this    service    free    of    charge    whether    you    decide    to    attend    our program or not. So, give us a try, no obligation whatsoever. We   just   hope   you   will   appreciate   the   quality   of   our   services   and   the   dedication   of   our Staff   and   Counselors;   we   expect   that   you   truly   want   the   best   service   and   optimum outcome   for   you.   There   is   no   catch…   By   now,   you   must   have   shelled   out   a   lot   of   money,   so try us first. ONCE ENROLLED… Once   you   are   enrolled   you   will   begin   attending   classes   on   a   regular   basis   at the   site   or   sites   most   convenient   to   you.   You   will   be   required   to   attend continuously   and   be   fully   aware   of   the   Program   Rules.   We   are   required   to report   your   attendance   to   the   Safety   Council,   and   they   in   turn   report   to   the DMV. As   long   as   you   don’t   miss   any   classes,   don’t   test   positive   for   drugs   or   alcohol   other   than your    prescription    medication,    you’ll    be    fine    and    will    soon    complete    your    Treatment successfully.   The   point   is   that   once   you   start,   don’t   stop!   Get   this   requirement   out   of   your way as quickly as you can.
