Week of January 9-12 Prime for Life and NC ADETS education classes are best practice programs designed to be a client-centered and comprehensive experience to assist clients regarding alcohol and/or drug use. 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 treating the DWI client must have a BAC below .15, never had a prior conviction lifetime, meet no diagnosis for a substance use disorder, and a few other criteria required and defined by NC DWI Services. The class is 16 hours, provided over 4-5 days.

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 which you would like to attend and schedule an enrollment session.

The cost of Prime for Life/ADETS is $185 including workbook.

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 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 prevents us from enrolling DWI ADETS clients without a current, valid lifetime driving record and proof of breathalyzer or blood alcohol content (BAC).
