DUI/DWI Offenders - Savannah

Drinking and driving, or driving while under the influence are severe offenses not to be taken lightly. While each state has its own way of handling DUI/DWI offenders, there are some generalities that can be expected. Depending on the severity of the driver's intoxication and how stringent the state laws are, they may have to serve time in jail for their offense. Once this is accomplished they will most likely have further retribution to do in order to drive a vehicle again. Many states require the person to undergo counseling and/or therapy to help in their recovery process. Typically these counseling sessions are held in a group setting by either a substance abuse counselor or a member of Alcoholics Anonymous. The state will determine a set number of therapy hours that the DUI/DWI offender will need to attend.
