Definition - What does Chemical Dependency Treatment mean?

Chemical dependency treatment programs may be court mandated or attended (in certain states) as an alternative to incarceration for those arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Programs are generally 12 to 26 weeks long and designed to meet the needs of the patient. Chemical dependency treatment programs consist of education, screening and alcohol assessment, educational services, group and individual counseling, intervention, and recommendations.

Chemical dependency treatment classes help individuals recognize the need to avoid drinking and driving with the ultimate goal of promoting safety and education in the community and throughout the United States.
