Alcohol/Drug Education & CBI Program

Our 12-hour Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention (CBI) Program is authorized by the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office for persons In Charlotte cited or arrested for misdemeanor violations such as shoplifting, larceny, simple assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. Upon successfully completing our Charlotte CBI program, clients will receive a certificate that they or their attorney can take back to court in order for the charge to be dismissed. The total cost for the entire CBI program is $180.00. Clients can secure their spot in a class online or by scheduling a in-person registration appointment.


Our clients have the option of registering for classes online, they can call 704-458-9292 to schedule, or they can visit one of our two locations in the Charlotte area to sign up for Cognitive Behavioral Intervention in person. Clients that choose to register online will be directed to our web base scheduling system were they can pay with either a debit or credit card to secure their seat in the class that best fits their schedule. Both the 12-hour CBI and the 15-hour Alcohol/Drug Education Classes are available for completion in just one weekend and cost $180.00.


We offer Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention (CBI) Program classes on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Clients can complete the entire program in just one weekend to obtain their 12 hour certificate of completion for court.


We service all age groups with a specialization in working with professionals, young adults, and college students. The majority of our clients either work, attend school, or both. Our hope is that we maintain a safe environment that caters to people who are not accustom to getting in trouble but just made a bad choice that lead them to the criminal justice system.


Clients enrolled in the class will be exposed to a variety of experiential learning tools including evidence-based workbooks, guest presenters, videos, group projects, and games that assist them with making future positive choices around alcohol and drugs. The goal of the course is not to tell clients what to do but inform them on the negative consequences if they choose to use or possess alcohol and drugs illegally.
