CO. - Dui/Dwi Offender Programs

DUI/DWI offenders in Colorado are sometimes given the opportunity to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center as opposed to receiving other penalties for their drug or alcohol related criminal offenses. The consequences for such criminal offenses can ordinarily be very harsh, which can include being locked up in jail and significant fines and other significant costs to pay for being in court for and/or convicted of DUI/DWI. Many times, especially for new offenders, the criminal justice system finds that treating the problems of alcohol and drug addiction in drug rehab is will prove more effective in the long term for curbing the problem. For DUI/DWI offenders in CO. that are fortunate enough to be allowed to participate in this rehab process instead of other more extreme consequences, many will stay away from the criminal justice system for good.
