Life after a DUII citation can be confusing and intimidating, so we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you stay informed:
What is DUI treatment?
DUI treatments are programs that are typically court-ordered after a person receives a citation for driving under the influence of an intoxicant. They are primarily focused on educating the person on the effects of drugs and alcohol in the context of driving as well as laws related to driving under the influence. The main goal of this education is to prevent the person from engaging in driving under the influence ever again.
Can I do DUI classes online?
The acceptability of online DUI classes varies from state to state. The state of Oregon does not recognize “online DUI classes” as an approved way for Oregon resident DUI or drug offenders to complete the state-mandated classes. If you live in Oregon and your offense happened in the state of Oregon you must attend a local class in your area. Non-resident offenders and residents who received a DUI in another state “may be eligible”, but we strongly advise that you check with the authority requiring the class to make sure they will accept an online distance learning program before registering for the class.
Do they drug test in DUI classes?
Yes, random alcohol and drug urine tests are a required part of all state-approved DUI programs in Oregon. You will be periodically and randomly tested for the duration of your treatment program, and all tests conducted must be negative in order to successfully complete DUI classes.
What is a DUI class like?
All DUI classes have the same goal, to educate the offender on the effects of drugs and alcohol on driving to prevent any future infractions. This is a very welcome alternative to sitting in a jail cell. The goal of DUI classes is also to help you recognize and gain control of your substance use habits.
