Prime for Life and NC ADETS education classes are best practice programs designed to be client-centered and comprehensive. Prime for Life is the only approved curriculum for ADETS. ADETS is required by NC DWI Services only for people who meet NC DWI Services standards for education only.
To qualify for ADETS rather than treatment the DWI client
All Prime For Life and ADETS NC DWI class participants must enroll in advance. By NC law, there are only 20 spaces allowed for each session. Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. The Prime For Life program meets many legal, school, job, etc. requirements.
To enroll, contact the Trinity Counseling Services LLC facility which you would like to attend and schedule an enrollment session. The cost of Prime for Life/ADETS for NC DWI requirements is $160 per session. The cost for non-NC DWI participants may be slightly higher due to the cost of materials $185 per session.
To enroll, be prepared to pay the full fees at enrollment. If you had your assessment elsewhere, the recommendation forms from the agency where you completed your assessment. According to NC DWI laws, a DWI assessment is valid for only six months. Participants must begin attending ADETS classes within 6 months of completing the assessment. Enrolling within 6 months but starting classes later than 6 months requires a new assessment according to statutes.
Trinity Counseling Services LLC utilizes the Prime For Life program as our ADETS programs. It is the standard best-practice model that is required for DWI ADETS programs.
Alcohol and Drug Education clients can usually qualify for our 16-hour substance use education program, Prime For Life, as an alternative to attending the Drug Education School. If you have an attorney, ask if the Prime for Life program will meet your requirements. Students are able to satisfy college requirements, employees meet job requirements, DOT, etc.
State of NC DWI regulations prevent us from enrolling DWI ADETS clients without a current, valid lifetime driving record and proof of breathalyzer or blood alcohol content (BAC).
