Feel the Vibe. Recovery Awareness Day 2024

DWI Services

Assisting clients and families through the process of satisfying DMV requirements and receiving treatment, if necessary.

The Blanchard Institute is licensed by the North Carolina DHHS to provide DWI Services for individuals charged with in-state and out-of-state DWI offenses, including DWI Assessments and, when recommended or required, additional substance use education or ongoing treatment.

Our team eases the process of satisfying the DMV requirements for both the individual and family. Our DWI Assessments are offered virtually or in-person at both our Charlotte and Lake Norman facilities. We also offer additional education around substance use disorders and ongoing substance use treatment based on what is mandated by North Carolina Statutes.

Once you’ve scheduled a DWI Assessment with The Blanchard Institute, the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NC DMV) E508 process begins.

No matter their position, The Blanchard Team treats you like family; they take the time to get to know you and what you truly need on a personal level. You instantly know how much they care about you and your success. They will challenge you and provide the “tough love” needed in recovery, but they will always have your back. Even when I picked up the bottle three times during treatment, they never judged me, but provided the support and encouragement I needed to get back on track. I would recommend The Blanchard institute to anyone; I love this place and everyone associated with them. Thank you, Blanchard.

  • Assessments are valid for six months; failure to comply with the NC DMV six-month timeline will require an additional assessment and fee.
  • The NC DMV generally will not reinstate the client’s driving privileges unless proof of completion and/or treatment is provided.
  • Clients who have been assessed by other facilities can elect to meet the NC DMV educational and/or ongoing care requirements with The Blanchard Institute with proof of their assessment.
