A first step to recovery
Not many people would wish for legal problems, but when the arrest for a crime results in an awakening and a major life improvement, then a DUI arrest can be a very positive step to recovery.
Many people find that their wall of denial breaks down under public and personal scrutiny after an alcohol related offense; and once a problem can no longer be denied, many people accept that professional help has become needed.
The intensity level of drug treatment as needed will vary depending on the severity of abuse and the length of the dependency, and for some an outpatient program of drug treatment after a DUI will be sufficient. For many, only inpatient drug treatment will offer hope of significant improvement.
