Multiple DUI’s Often Indicate Alcoholism: Here’s How to Get the Help You Need

By September 17, 2019 No Comments

Whether you are suffering from alcoholism or not, it can be easy to misjudge whether you are over the legal limit for driving when you have a few drinks. Many first time offenders find themselves with a DUI after having just a few glasses of wine with dinner or a few beers at an event.

California has particularly tough DUI laws. You will need a strong DUI attorney such as Dolan Law Offices to assist you with obtaining the best possible resolution for your case.

Many first time offenders do not have a problem with alcohol but did make a mistake in thinking they would be under the legal limit to drive.

However, if you find that you are facing charges for another DUI, you will want to take a good look at the possibility that you are a problem drinker or an alcoholic.

At Dolan Law Offices, our Recovery Law team will meet with you to access your situation and help you to address the underlying issues with your DUI. Alcoholism is a disease and our office is uniquely prepared to find a resolution to your case that focuses on your well being and health.

If you are interested in getting into treatment, we have many local contacts and options for that. You may find that it would be beneficial to have an Interlock Ignition Device installed on your car so that you would be unable to drive your vehicle after drinking, thereby preventing another DUI and giving yourself time to get sober and build a recovery foundation.

We will support you in your efforts to remain sober whether by attending AA meetings, counseling sessions, outpatient treatment or an inpatient residential program.

If you are facing charges for a second, third, or fourth DUI, the criminal penalties attached are significant. Courts and the District Attorney’s Office look favorably on clients who take action to address the problem before being court-ordered to do so. We often fashion a resolution with a recovery program at the helm so that our clients have an opportunity to get well and stop the cycle from repeating.
