Alcohol Abuse Treatment
alcohol or drug abuse treatment
Should I get into an alcohol treatment program while my current operating under the influence case is pending?
treatment in your owi case
If you are convicted for an OWI (operating while under the influence) in Wisconsin, the court will order you to undergo an assessment to determine if you have an alcohol or drug abuse problem. If it is determined that you have an abuse problem, then the assessment will also attempt to identify to what degree.
required alcohol or drug abuse programs
If you are convicted of a drunk driving offense, and the subsequent assessment indicates that an abuse problem may exist, you will be ordered into a treatment program.
treatment in negotiations
Treatment undergone voluntarily can be a positive negotiation point preliminary to taking the case to trial. Conversely, if the results are positive, they can play very favorably in the pre-trial negotiations.
negative treatment reports
If the results are negative, they need not be mentioned to the prosecuting attorney.
the bottom line
If you need treatment, the bottom line is that you should get treatment. To need treatment and voluntarily obtain it is much better for you than to need treatment and refuse to get it or deny that it is needed. A good defense will always create a strategy that will put you in the best light.
