What Makes Behavioral Health Intervention Center Different:

At Behavioral Health Intervention Center, you have the option of completing your DWI Assessment and DWI Classes across one of our three Charlotte, North Carolina DWI and DUI Facilities. Despite where you get your DWI Assessment completed, you can complete the classes at one of our three locations, and this includes transfers. If you have completed a DWI assessment at another DWI facility and it was completed with the six-month time frame allowed, you can complete the recommended DWI or DUI class hours at a Behavioral Health Intervention Center DWI facility. If you chose to complete your DWI Assessment or Out of State DWI/DUI assessment at a Behavioral Health Intervention Center location, you can rest assure the assessor will provide you a fair DWI assessment and will not provide you with a recommendation of more hours than you need.

When Behavioral Health Intervention Center DWI assessors meet with you they are polite and treat you with respect. Our assessors understand you have already been through enough grief and it’s not our job to make you feel any worst off. We take pride in assisting our clients with completing their DWI assessment, ADETS classes, short and long term DWI or DUI class recommended hours in a convenient and timely manner. You will have the ability to call our DWI clerical staff to ask questions pertaining to the number of DWI class hours you have left, request to get your DWI assessment paperwork sent to your DWI attorney, or the status of your completed E-508 form which is the final step in completing your DWI or DUI process prior to get your North Carolina Driver’s License reinstated.
