We are committed to helping those struggling with alcoholism recognize the signs and symptoms of addiction, get on the path to recovery, and develop the skills necessary to stay sober. Being convicted of a DUI can be a scary, stressful experience but you don"t have to go through it alone. If you have been convicted of a DUI and need a DUI evaluation, we are here to help.
Our counselors know how to recognize the problematic behaviors associated with alcohol abuse and addiction. Since it can be difficult to recognize this on your own, a DUI assessment may be the best step you can take toward determining the difference between addiction and enjoyment.
If we do find that you are struggling with a substance abuse disorder, our work does not stop there. Instead, we are equally committed to helping you treat and work through your alcoholism so that something as scary as a DUI conviction never happens again. With this in mind, we include those who need treatment for a DUI or alcoholism in our intensive outpatient program. This program helps those struggling with addiction not only work through the consequences of their alcoholism, but also figure out how to manage it moving forward.
In Washington State, a DUI conviction is often followed by a court-ordered DUI evaluation. Our mission with this service is to engage you with honest questions and answers about your drinking habits. This will not only help the court decide if treatment and alcohol education is a necessary consequence of a DUI, but it will also help you be honest with yourself about your potential for alcohol abuse.
As part of the evaluation, we will need a copy of your driving record, criminal history, and the officer"s arrest report. This will help us understand the entire picture and make the right recommendations for you.
Determining the prevalence of these signs and symptoms of alcohol dependency is at the core of our DUI evaluation process. We want to work with you in determining how alcohol abuse has affected your life and the lives of others, and then help you get on the path toward sobriety and recovery.
Depending on the outcome of the DUI evaluation, you may decide to get treatment for alcoholism and addiction. Our treatment center can provide you with the help you need to overcome your dependency and the negative consequences that it brings. If you are interested in getting this treatment, you can find out more about our intensive outpatient program for alcoholism treatment below.
If you have been convicted of a DUI, this most likely means that you have lost control of your drinking habits and become dependent on or even addicted to alcohol. Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue is here to help with that.
Participants in our DUI treatment program will be integrated with our intensive outpatient program (IOP). Outpatient treatment is a form of rehab that delivers the same behavioral therapy and holistic treatment that makes inpatient therapy successful. The main difference is that you are able to live at home, maintaining your day-to-day life during treatment.
The overarching goal of our intensive outpatient program is the same as any other form of treatment: not only to overcome alcoholism and ensure responsible habits, but also to help you get well on your way to living an alcohol-free life.
Many insurance companies will cover 100% of the cost of outpatient treatment. Call today and find out if your plan qualifies. We can also help with financing. (425) 629-0433
You can expect to take all of the following steps when receiving DUI treatment through our intensive outpatient program:
All of these components are necessary steps to a successful treatment program, and Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue focuses on all of them to ensure effective DUI treatment for all of our clients. Our IOP supports clients from detox all the way through when they have finished treatment and are ready to responsibly drive again. Besides the necessary steps outlined above, you can expect that Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue will remain committed to offering you the following features throughout the duration of your program participation:
The first step toward DUI treatment is a DUI evaluation. At our treatment facility, we approved by the department of social and health services to conduct a diagnostic evaluation as ordered by the court. If you have received a DUI and the court has ordered a DUI evaluation, Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue can help you start the evaluation and treatment process.
Based on the initial evaluation, our counselors will recommend a course of treatment given your personal and unique situation. In most cases, this will be treatment through our intensive outpatient program. Our IOP for alcohol addiction treatment consists of the following elements:
Our IOP typically lasts for around twelve weeks, or three months. During the program, clients will attend several sessions each week for a total of nine hours of treatment. Each session will have a different focus, bringing participants from initially processing the consequences of their DUI conviction to developing the coping skills necessary for avoiding alcoholic triggers in the future.
The focus of treatment at our center is on cognitive behavioral therapy, which is designed to help you recognize and then cope with the situations that cause you to drink. This therapy approach also helps participants work through the negative impact that their drinking and DUI have had on their personal and professional lives. Ultimately, the goal of our program is to not only address the immediate concern of the DUI, but also to overcome dependency on alcohol altogether.
Using the cognitive behavioral therapy approach, along with the 12-step philosophy of recovery, Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue helps program participants go beyond the consequences of a DUI conviction and the next steps of a DUI evaluation by providing:
In some cases, alcohol detox is a necessary part of DUI treatment. Alcohol detox is about completely ridding your body of the tolerance to toxins that it has built up over time. This tolerance creates chemically-induced impulses, which manifest as alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms are anxiety, nausea, irritability, agitation, tremors, and even seizures in extreme cases.
If you are showing signs of alcohol withdrawal, a detox program is necessary for managing the symptoms when they are strongest. Everyone who struggles with alcoholism has a different story to tell, however, at least 50% of people who suffer from alcoholism experience withdrawal symptoms when they try to quit. If you have had a DUI, it is likely that you are unable to manage your drinking behaviors on your own. This is exactly what detox is available for, along with our entire treatment program.
Getting the treatment you need for alcoholism after a DUI conviction can be an intense prospect. Many people do not know where to begin, even if they want to reach out for treatment and help.
We are here to help you through this process and give you the best information possible regarding DUI evaluations and treatment for alcoholism. We address some of the most common questions about DUI evaluations and treatment below. If you still have questions, do not hesitate to reach out and contact us today. We will be glad to respond to any questions that you have regarding our DUI evaluations and treatment services.
Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue serves those in the Bellevue, WA area and is therefore subject to Washington State law. According to this law, 'A person subject to alcohol assessment and treatment shall be required by the court to complete a course in an alcohol information school... or complete more intensive treatment in a substance use disorder treatment program approved by the department of social and health services.' Northpoint Evergreen Bellevue meets these standards, and our treatment facility is approved to provide both treatment and evaluation in DUI cases. We are not publically funded, so people do not enter our program by court order. However, we open our doors to those who have been convicted of a DUI and want additional help.
After your initial DUI evaluation, our counselors will recommend you to our intensive outpatient program (IOP). This is the only option we offer for DUI treatment, but it is a holistic one. While we do not have a program specifically for DUI treatment, our IOP is tailored to the needs and experiences of each and every participant, so you will be receiving exactly what you need.
In some cases, the court will require the completion of DUI classes or an education program after a DUI conviction. While we are committed to helping program participants understand alcoholism and its effects, we are not an alcohol education program. But what is the difference?
DUI classes focus on the behaviors and dangers associated with alcohol abuse, particularly in reference to driving. In contrast, our IOP treatment focuses on the underlying issues of alcohol addiction and substance use disorders. In a phrase, DUI treatment goes deeper than DUI classes, helping participants not only recognize problematic behaviors but also develop the coping skills to overcome addiction altogether.
We are a HIPAA compliant facility; under no circumstances will your involvement with the facility or your personal information be released to family, friends or outside agencies.
The cost of both alcohol assessments and subsequent treatment will vary depending on your individual circumstances. To get a better idea of the cost associated with our services, feel free to reach out to us today.
Yes, we accept payment from multiple insurance companies in Washington. Many of our clients get the treatment they need without any out of pocket expenses, while others need only cover their deductible. While you will most likely need to pay for the DUI evaluation out of pocket, most of the cost associated with DUI treatment can be covered by insurance.
