DUI/DWI Drug Rehab Program in Virginia


Learn more about our DUI/DWI rehab program

At The Life Center of Galax, we understand that anyone can be charged with a  DUI/DWI when they make the decision to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  It is our goal to provide treatment and education for those individuals dealing with a DUI/DWI offense that will increase self-awareness and help prevent future issues.

The Life Center of Galax offers seven to thirty-day DUI/DWI residential programs designed for those individuals with DUI/DWI related offenses. Our program includes the following:

  • Comprehensive medical and psychological assessments
  • Education on the disease of alcoholism and addiction
  • Group and individual counseling sessions
  • Introduction to 12-Step Recovery models of AA and NA

In addition, all patients who successfully finish the program are given a certificate of completion. With your permission, we also provide information to your counselor, attorney and the court system as appropriate and requested.

Admissions for Our DUI/DWI Program

Learn more about our DUI/DWI admissions criteria

We provide admission, both voluntary and court ordered, 24 hours a day for individuals 18 years and older.

The Division of Motor Vehicle requirements for maintaining or obtaining a driver’s license after conviction of a DUI/DWI offense may vary between states. Further assessment and treatment or classes would be needed in order to meet these DMV requirements. Your counselor would be able to assist you with a referral to a DUI/DWI assessor in your local area. 

Galax's specialty programs allowed me to receive an individualized treatment plan that helped me get back on track.
